The images presented in this book were chronicled during one journey from London to Morocco, overland, over the course of two magical weeks; a journey that roughly descended along the Prime Meridian. Beginning our journey in London, the first photographs of our journey were not documented until our arrival in Paris; the
birthplace of the black & white street photography which I aspire to, covet, but rarely - if ever - parallel. Our journey, this book, maps our passage out of the familiar, comfortable territories of Western Europe into unfamiliar, intoxicating and intense cultures, societies and lands. It is a journey that will take in the busy pavements and bustling street cafes of Paris; the impassioned and claustrophobic Moroccan souks and medinas - with their exotic sights, alien sounds and bitter-sweet smells - and; the heady, tranquil but unforgiving climbs of the Atlas mountains and Atlantic coast.

All images shot by LwS in October 2008 on his Leica M3.

About the Author

James Kirkbride
lws Cambridge, UK
An aspiring street photographer, attempting to bring my unique view on life to bare through the lens of my two trusted film cameras, a Leica M3 & Yashica 124g. I work in the style and tradition of the great men of the genre, Cartier-Bresson, Frank, but would never be as bold as to claim recreating anything close to the beauty they achieve; that I leave to time and others to decide.
