Favourite Visual Artist
Among many others, Photography: Robert Häuser, Frank Capa, Edward Steichen, Ray Man, Ansel Adams. Non-photography: Brett Whiteley and I love the work of William Ricketts. I favour the "Blaue Reiter" artists like Marc or Kandinski...
Many, but for entertainment I really love Bill Bryson! And I'm in constant awe of Sir Thomas Browne.
Tools of the Trade
Analog: medium format Mamiya RZ67 ProII, RB67 Pro SD, ZM Quartz 35mm. Digital: my old trusty Pentax K10D
Too much to list. I'm curious about almost everything. I also would love to photograph in large format. This will definitly be a tool of the trade sooner or later.
