About the Author

Rick Senley
rickpicks London, England
Shortlisted for last year's Travel Photographer of the Year, I take pics of and write about everyone from villains to boxers, soldiers to whores, bullfighters, musicians and travelling gypsies. I hate celebrities and large dogs. I have travelled across South America, Asia and Europe; from London to Hong Kong by boat, bus and train, I have been shot at in Georgia, molested in a Turkish bath and bitten by an insect in Australia. I went to university in Italy, Leicester and Hungary and unsuccessfully tried to escape from a police station when working as a teacher in Greece. I also won second prize (20p) in a village photography competition in Suffolk but the voting was allegedly rigged. I am happiest when I am anywhere but London (a weekly complaint can be read here:, where I grew up and grew bored and where I am finishing two novels and producing my own music. I can swear in Norwegian and own a zither.
