Candid capital: The Transparent Woman

The Transparent Woman

This haunting training model for medical students was made in Dresden- then part of Communist East Germany- in 1980. It was restored in 2006 and is currently on long term loan to the Wellcome Collection on Euston Road. 

For the Love of London

Today, the 9th March 2017, a new book focusing on London goes on sale- ‘For the Love of London‘, compiled by Conrad Gamble.

The book features many contributors including Stephen Fry, Dom Joly and the late Dame Zaha Hadid, all saying what makes this wonderful city great for them. I’m also very pleased to say that I make an appearance!

For the Love of London is now available on Amazon.
