Reportage Photography, Writing, Independent Magazines and Graphic Design


Expect lots of wordy things - independent magazines primarily - with plenty of reportage photography and great bits of design. There will also be occasional pieces of written reportage stories. It all comes down to time.

Who Likes Notebooks? SOOP Do

This was the first submission to the notebook thing that we started on Instagram.

SOOP (So Open Our Pages) is the student magazine at the sixth form I used to teach at. The young people who are part of it are full of energy and enthusiasm for their English studies, they were a top bunch to teach. I'm pleased they took part in this little project or game.

Most of them are off to University and the big, bad world beyond, this summer, but I'm sure they'll be just fine wherever they end up.

As for SOOP? Well, the next crop of Year 13 students will come through and take the reigns.

If you'd like to take part in the project, get involved on Instagram.

Take a picture of one of your notebooks, tag @thingandwhere and tell everyone a little bit about it.

Where did you get it? Why do you like it? What do you use it for? How often do you use it? What will happen when it's full? Who made it?

Cheers, Paul (& Bharat).
