    Written on the wall behind is this “Une place pour chaque chose et chaque chose à sa place” “A place for everything and everything in it’s place”

  10. This is my friend Mark Hoddy. I started shooting Mark a few years ago for Laithwaites, where he is the resident winemaker at Le Chai Au Quai in Castillon-La-Bataille in South West France. Apart from being an all round great guy and Bob Dylan aficionado, he also happens to be a fantastic winemaker……Working in the wine industry since he was 12 years old !! He’s currently making wine in India …… Check out his blog here http://lechai.blogspot.com or follow his wine adventures  on Twitter

     

  11. John Esty is a remarkable craftsman. His framing shop on Greenwich Avenue in NYC is beautiful and his work second to none…. Everything is done by hand, carving, gilding, construction… right down to his hand written invoices.

  15. My father never bought anything new. Everything was repaired or recycled… to us from friends or from us to other friends. Dad could fix or make anything, electrical, plumbing, carpentry, cars…. he was also a dab hand with a sewing machine.

    I am proud that he instilled some of his knowledge to me and I find I can turn my hand to most things because of him. Sadly, when I have a problem I can’t solve he’s no longer there for me to wrack his encyclopaedic knowledge of cement mixes or how to cut a roof tile or why the goddamn car just won’t start. He had a Haynes manual for most things……

    As a result I find I’m far more interested in the process than the finished product and I see the beauty in a good weld or a freshly plastered wall and the artistry and care that goes into things that most of us take for granted.
