Philip-Lorca diCorcia’s body of work, “Hustlers”, was taken during the AIDS pandemic in the late 80s/early 90s and was a direct response to a surge in anti-homosexual rhetoric and related impact on the funding of the arts. The exhibition of the work at @themuseumofmodernart in 1993 proved to be a turning point for both art and fashion photography. @steidlverlag printed a book in 2013 that’s a must-have. @metmuseum @guggenheim @tate @vamuseum @whitneymuseum @sfmoma @mocalosangeles

“We're really happy. Our kids are healthy, we eat good food, and we have a really nice home.”
From Bill Owens’ 1972 body of work, “Suburbia”. Not only a gifted Californian photographer, but also a micro-brewer of beer and indeed founder of The American Distilling Institute. @themuseumofmodernart @gettymuseum @mocalosangeles @robertkochgallery

Stanley Kubrick’s photograph of a couple climbing the steps to Castelo de São Jorge in Lisbon in 1948 was also chosen by the picture editor at Look magazine. A lot of cardiovascular for a guy wearing a suit.

In 1948, Look Magazine gave a young photographer from the Bronx his first international assignment. Here are my favourite images from the resultant body of work produced by Stanley Kubrick. I first saw these photographs of Portugal in an exhibition at Venice’s Palazzo Cavalli Franchetti in 2010. One for the diary: @museumofcityny will have an exhibition called “Through a Different Lens: Stanley Kubrick Photographs” on 3 May 2018.

I took this in Lisbon back in 2016. Fun playing with plains and lines.

In 2010, Martin Parr visited my former school, Christ’s Hospital, and produced a memorable body of work. The school’s uniform has not changed since 1552. To put that in context, that’s over 200 years before American independence. Here are my favourite images, which includes a “classic” Parr (tea cup). ©️ Martin Parr/Magnum Photos @magnumphotos @martinparrstudio

“Mom Posing in Palm Springs” by Larry Sultan in 1984. Palm Springs is right up there as my favourite part of the US - rattle snakes and a mid-Century oasis in the desert. ©️ Larry Sultan estate @themuseumofmodernart @metmuseum

Gérard Castello-Lopes took this photograph in 1957 and it is one of my favourite images of Lisbon, the Atlantic’s most beautiful city. Feliz Ano Novo!

Pickle was very naughty this Christmas, as she somehow got on to the table and ate a whole bowl of “bubble and squeak”. #borderterrier
