Juca Martins, quite possibly Brazil’s greatest photojounalist, won the Nikon International Award in 1981 for his series on the Serra Pelada gold mine. In 1986, Sebastião Salgado produced his acclaimed series on the same subject matter. Photography is not a competition, but with Sotheby’s selling a portfolio of the amazing gold mine series for close to £120,000, this comparison underlines the opportunity open to collectors interested in discovering diverse points in the history of photography. @utopica.photography

Nuns in Madrid airport today and the All Blacks at Heathrow yesterday. Life is a minestrone.

Always liked the UN Building in Manhattan. A great piece of 1950s architecture.

Lying down on stones and rocks wasn’t as bad as I thought.

Designed in 1968 during the Cold War by Roman Cieslewicz, a renowned graphic artist, designer and teacher who was based in Paris . When design works it’s timeless.
