The World from My Front Porch is a remarkable photobook by Larry Towell (fortunately I bought a copy about 10 years ago, it is now out of print and expensive). I do not have a front porch, but since the middle of December I am living in an awesome, small studio flat in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen (somewhat akin to winning the Lotto, finding a flat like this in Copenhagen and I am very grateful). So, no front porch, but I do have one helluva interesting view! My flat is on top of a supermarket (shopping during lockdown has never been easier) and overlooks a big car park where I have this massive 180 degree unobstructed view. My cameras do not see a lot of action during our current lockdown, but at least I have a great view of the world to document. In the time I have lived here, I have had Christmas tree sellers, replaced by fireworks sellers, replaced by a COVID-19 quick-test trailer! Add snow, fog, sun, rain and The World from My Front Window is quite interesting. This will be my ongoing daily documentary project, here is a small taste from my first 6-7 weeks.
