A friend, Peta Orbach, just sent me the link to this beautiful new art shop ‘Colossal’ that has just opened in Tokyo, which set me thinking about some of the photos I’ve been taking/processing during Amazing Space.

Maybe ‘Colossal’ isn’t quite the word for us: more ‘Small is beautiful too’.

Terry Bugden, who is a member of the Dove Fingerprint group, is also a great photographer, and has kindly offered to be project photographer for Amazing Space. When he is not taking pictures of people or their work for us, he shoots what I call his quirky photos, though he says he’s never had them called that before. Maybe I should amend that to: he has an eye for detail and for that which is not immediately obvious. This is the hallmark of all good photographers, in my book. Will that do, Terry?
