Richard James Palmer is a British photographer from South Shields, UK. He spends his time documenting the North East of England, using a Mamiya 7ii and Ilford Hp5, Richard has recently self published a book on his Home Town, “Home Sweet Home” and is currently working on a 365 project using Fuji Instax Wide and continuing to document his home town for Home Sweet Home volume 2.
I discovered Walter Rothwell’s work through the fantastic magazine The Inspired Eye who were kind enough to feature both of our photography in their magazine and on their blog.
Walter combines two of my favourite things in photography. The Hassleblad X-pan and street Photography. If any of you don’t know, the X-pan is a panoramic camera made actually by Fuji for Hassleblad which exposes two 35mm frames to give a panoramic image and utilises rangefinder focusing.
