I'm stuck in London with the snow coming down outside waiting to see if the trains will run to Paris tomorrow and just had an email from Alec Soth about his new blog Little Brown Mushroom, which is well worth checking out. Doubleplusgood Books features on their comprehensive list of photo book & zine links. 'Now We Are 30' also appears on the Artist Book Database run by David Schoerner from Hassla Books. Both great resources for anyone interested in photobooks.

Merry Christmas to one and all!

For those about to shop, we salute you

Now We Are 30 is officially available for your buying pleasure - just click on the "Buy Now" button over on the left. 48 pages, 36 full colour images, litho printed and perfect bound. Limited edition of 500 copies. Dead sexy and only £15.

We’ve all had them: good days, bad days, in-between days, days where the light shines brightly through the curtain and all you can think is, “I don’t want to get up”. Days where the girl leaves. Days where she comes back. Days where the sun clatters off the pavement, where the leaves fall, where everything is perfect – days you want, even if you don’t know why, or how, to hold onto forever.

Now We Are 30 is a selection of the best (and worst) of those days. A series of Polaroid images charting one year in the life of Stuart Woodman: a year of change; of breakup; of new beginnings and strange places. But also, like any other year, of the mundane and minute. Using the un-editable immediacy of a Polaroid, Woodman tracks the big and little things of his life, adhering to a strict policy of “one day, one image”: days of moving cities, of failing relationships, of new beginnings. This book – poignant, moving, reflective, grainily beautiful – is the result.
