Mumbai Porter by duncan mckenzie

MUMBAI PORTER looks candidly at the porters and cart pullers of Bendhi Bazaar, Mumbai. 

Determination, busyness, self-absorption: the defining characteristics of the urban dweller moving through public space. And none more so than these men-at-work, whose concentration is palpable. This material shot in Mumbai follows on from my London Pedestrian series where the light bathes the subject in their own psychological aura, caught in their own hermetic world.

Repeater Books Launch by duncan mckenzie

Great atmosphere and crowd at Repeater books launch, the new imprint offshoot of Zero books whose "purpose is ... that of bringing marginal, esoteric, idiosyncratic and necessary literature and thought into a mainstream that would otherwise ignore it."

Picked up a copy of The Isle of Minimus http://repeaterbooks.com/books/the-isle-of-minimus-mkl-murphy/ which is like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, but on acid, if that's possible, extremely amusing.
