Travel photography with a twist – Tom Robinson’s “Feet First” is a long term project with a great story behind the images.

British photographer Tom Robinson’s Feet First is a great example of a long term project with a very simple central theme, but great variety in the resulting photographs, and an interesting story behind it. Tom describes it best:

“While sitting on Brighton beach (England) back in 2005 with my new girlfriend Verity I suddenly thought the view 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.”

The black and white photo above is the one that started it all, and below is a selection of others from 2005 till now. For more, visit the project’s page on Tom’s site and hover over the photos to read the story behind each image.

We hope Tom’s photography inspires you to start your own long term project – remember, it does not have to be complicated or require a lot of work!
