1930's Gentleman

Dedicated to bringing the past to the present, and having fun in the process

We Englishmen and woman may have done some terrible things in our past, and we may have many flaws, but you must admit, we make brilliant documentaries 


So, how was your summer holiday?

At first I was like:

And then I was like:

Unconstant Lover: Gangs of New York OST

One of my favourite tracks from the film

I’m going to be honest here, lay my cards on the table and show my hand. If Woody’s Roundup was an actual black and white children’s program from the 50s, I would watch the hell out of it


Alexey Titarenko, City of Shadows, (1992-1994)

Inspiration lies everywhere. In fact, it can even be found in the darkest of times. For Alexey Titarenko, that time came when the Soviet Union collapsed. “In the winter of 1991-1992, one cold and gloomy day, I strolled sadly down a street which used to be packed with people, which used to be full of joyful vibrancy and dynamism,” shares Titarenko. “I saw people on the verge of insanity, in confusion: They looked like shadows, undernourished and worn out.” 

While waiting outside a subway station, Titarenko noticed how a crowd of people evolved in front of his very eyes. With the belief that he could make time stand still by changing the camera’s shutter speed, he created this interesting set of photos. He called the series City of Shadows.
