Nick Ballon is a photographer based in London, an observer par excellence. With an underlying, yet gently satirical sense of humour, his documentary photography is as carefully considered as he is as a person. His portraits are wonderfully to the point, allowing his subjects to flourish in his frame, whilst his landscapes convey a poetic and timeless sense of space.

Future Photography with some neat pictures of expensive and good looking cars. Even with commercial shots like this, I appreciated the well integrated car-tarmac theme, like the green Lamborghini Miura (designed by Marcello Gandini at Bertone) leaving the rest of automobile history behind.
Other pictures are from Aston Martin One-77 and Ferrari 458 Italia.
