Boris Earth Shines


Boris Earth a.k.a Jon Gresham uses Leica & Rollei Rolleiflex, a rather expensive gear, to shoot a sort of street documentary. I asked Jon to write a short bio for our blog and here’s how he describes himself:

‘Expatriate, eclectic, Eurasian, English-Australian living and roaming around Asia.

Boris Earth (a pseudonym) was born in England and then emigrated to Adelaide just before Maggie and the eighties. He is an Australian citizen who lived in Thailand for the first three years of the 21st century but now lives in Singapore. He takes photographs, writes stories and draws pictures to avoid shopping and television. In his spare time he works across Asia for an investment bank. He is notorious for his tin tin haircut, high scores on Web boggle, Basil Brush laugh & obscure rants on clowns in street photography.’

See more of Jon’s fine photography & writings on his website, The Sun Shines & The Igloo Melts.

    On clowns in Stret Photography:

    I have this thing where I dress as a clown – red nose, large shoes & squirting flower – with a camera & just take pictures in the street & do juggling & ride a unicycle & take pictures – just to see what comes out.
