John Tuckey Stars in The Lure of The Past

John Tuckey is a photographer who has honed his craft with depictions of the ’30s, ’40s and ’50s, shooting exclusively in monochome. In his own words his work is, “an exercise in nostalgia.” The goal to recreate a look of retro glamor, as if the images were previous undiscovered shots from a World War II battlefield or from the set of a lost Hollywood film. Two main themes stand out from his work: glamour shots of sensual women, and images of wartime from following re-enactors at the many displ

Werner Forman Archive Discovers New, Unpublished Images Renowned photographer Werner Forman (who died in 2010) spent his life travelling to sites of ancient civilisations and cultures, and photographing them. Now new, unpublished material has come to light – thousands of photographs on all sorts of media, including glass plates and colour transparencies. “It's a detective story,” says Werner Forman Archive Director Barbara Heller, “ these images are astounding records of ancient cultures. We have had a laborious task going through them, cataloguing them, and digitising them, but they are now becoming available through our collection. It's been a real challenge.” She adds, “We are fortunate in knowing a number of academics and art dealers who have been willing to help us identify them”

Sat Nav Ospreys Tracked From Scotland - Destination Africa

Ospreys are rare in Britain. The bird was once widespread throughout the UK, but declined through persecution and by 1916 was extinct as a British nesting bird. In 1954 ospreys recolonised the UK at Loch Garten and, although the birds have since spread, the Scottish Highlands remain the bird’s UK stronghold. This fish-eating bird of prey is one of the UK's most fascinating sights and a number of pairs have been successfully breeding. Ospreys migrate to Africa for the winter, returning in the spring, and this hazardous journey can now be analysed as some birds have been fitted with satellite tracking by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB).
