‘Feet First’ Travel Photography

Tom-Robinson travel photography feet

London photographer Tom Robinson got the idea for his Feet First series in 2005 while sitting on Brighton beach (England) with his new girlfriend Verity. He writes: ‘I thought the scene of our feet pointing out to sea would make a nice photo. Ever since then, we’ve continued to document our travels in this way, resulting in a collection of over 90 photos. In 2011 the series took a new twist with the arrival of a third set of feet – our daughter Matilda.’

    Cute concept. It has rather limited angle and perspective but the overall results are fantastic. Last photo is precious

  • Matthew Bamberg

    Interesting concept, but I don’t care much for feet, that is unless they have some really cool pumps on them.

  • Matt – Perfect Places

    Nice idea. Got my attention and the photo composition is well done. Got a sense of place and you added the human element with feet.
