Just as the nights are drawing in (at around 4 in the afternoon) and we all steel ourselves for weeks of cold and dark, I thought it would be nice to cast our minds back to a few short months ago when visiting France and Italy didn’t conjure up thoughts of deficits, defaults and doom.

I’ve just published my latest edition of Richard’s Gallery Magazine in which I revisit some of the pictures from my summer exhibition ‘Café Culture’.

As ever I hope you all enjoy it and your comments and criticisms are always welcome.
