Every year, 400 people gather for a very unusual occasion in central London, unusual in the sense that a large percentage of them will be trundling a rather large suitcase behind them. In said suitcase is an animal costume, but not just any animal costume, oh no. Not a mascot, not a onesie or a…

Bhavvels Bunny-At Home With The Furries

I’ve got to know Bhav over the last few years of this project. I always find him sketching in a corner of a furry meet, usually surrounded by other artists. He’s a lovely chap and over the course of the last few years, he’s constructed his own suit. A furry called Aggie, (the disco gryffon…

One to watch-Phil Clarke-Hill-Photojournalist

Phil Clarke-Hill is a photographer I’ve worked with a few times, back when I was running the picture desk at Bizarre magazine. When he came to see me with his book, he was just beginning in his career. His work was good, quite raw. As I recall he’d gone off to Bolivia photographing shoe shine…
