It’s good to see that issue one of The Ride Journal is about to hit the streets – a new UK-based Journal on cycling and bike culture very much in the quaterly journal ‘Rouleur’ quality mould, and featuring writing and photography on bike culture from all over the world. There’s even a few snaps from me in there, though as I’m still waiting for see a copy (hint hint mr editor man 馃槈 ) I’ve no idea how it all turned out. The journal should be available from the usual magazine outlets and bike shops nationwide soon.

I met St铆gur Stein镁贸rsson when I was in Reykjavik recently – he’s a talented photoghrapher and the owner of the fotografi gallery, Reykjavik’s only dedicated photography gallery. The gallery has reprints from Reykjavik’s photographic archive for sale, featuring some truly gorgeous b&w and colour images of Iceland from the early 20th C onwards, and a small exhibition space for fine art and documentary photography. Definitely worth a visit.

Saul Leiter’s beautiful early colour work is at Faggionato Fine Art until July 4th; strong, graphic images and a sense of colour to rival Eggleston’s:

and I’ll be catching the Unpoular Culture show curated by Grayson Perry before it closes on July 6th – any excuse for another visit to the funky new De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill, and a chance to scoff fish & chips on the train home…mmmmmm…….

And a thought-provoking piece in last week’s Guardian on the hyperreal ‘threat’ of photography –
