You may already be familiar with Gavin’s beautifully moody and evocative photography as it’s been featured here on our site before.

The London Eye



If not, I’d like to remedy that situation right now, in light of the fact that it would be remiss for our fans not to know about it considering he’s received coverage in many of the UK’s national press this week! 


His ‘London in Puddles’ lomography series has been featured in Stylist magazineThe Telegraph, The Metro, The Daily Mail, The Evening Standard, and The Mirror,  no doubt inspired by the rainy weather we endured over the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee holiday (which was wonderful, but VERY wet).


He told the papers: “I stumbled upon my first puddles image by accident. My bicycle had been stolen so I was walking into town along the South Bank for once rather than pedalling past it in a hurry. It began to rain as I approached the London Eye and a large flock of tourists were blocking my way. I hate to be in a crowd so I stared at my feet as I waited for them to pass. And lo! a beautiful reflection of one of the gondolas emerged from a puddle, like a vision from another world, a view of a parallel universe.”

You can see his entire London set here on his Flickr page, (please get in touch with us via or contact page if you’d like to purchase prints).


Never one to rest on his laurels, Gavin (and film editor Phil G) also just produced this audio/visual clip showcasing his other sets of snaps, alongside a remix of our track ‘At Your Leisure,’ done by Berlin-based producer and DJ, Deep Child


We hope you enjoy its dark and mellow loveliness…
