Photographs of Sanya: China’s “Hawaii”

Sanya Biel Calderon_01

Looking for a break from the Beijing ‘fog’, photographers Biel Calderon and Mark Esplin decided to travel to Sanya, an Island and famous tourist destination in Southern China. ‘We felt it would be intriguing to collaborate given that we both grew up in a similar environment to Sanya – Mallorca and Torquay respectively. The concept was to collectively document our experience. Inspired by Christopher Anderson’s quote “My work is a truth, but it is my truth, my experience” we felt it would be interesting for two photographers, with different styles, to approach one story,’ said Calderon.

‘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.’

Their first project together was an award-winning self published book called Where Are You? which documented the charming and tawdry details of Northern British life.
