Broadsheet readers, who know everything, may already be aware of the Phantom Siberia Photo Girl. She had her moment of fame earlier this week, after many years languishing in a dusty collection of photos belonging to the Krasnoyarsk Regional Museum of Local Lore.

But what about the Phantom Irish Photo Boy?

I’ve been intrigued for some time about this stylish little feller romping through the photos of 60s and 70s Dublin in the Michael Walker Photo collection, National Library of Ireland. Is he a Very Junior Walker or just a random stray kid who tagged along at photo sessions?

Also, what’s up with the National Library of Ireland’s policy of brutally watermarking their photos? A very ‘commercial’ decision for a public institution intended to be for the benefit of all this country’s citizens. Perhaps their online curator has an explanation?

I was hoping your readers might enjoy this photo series [link below] based on the concept of home, something I started exploring when living in Japan. I began asking expat friends what their sense of home was when living abroad, I wanted to know how they kept themselves grounded..

I’m now looking to photograph people who have made Ireland their home. There’s a contact on the website [link below] if interested!

American photographer Beth Moon has spent the last 14 years travelling the world in search of the oldest, rarest and biggest trees.

Her duotone prints are specially developed for exhibition using a platinum/palladium process that ensures a deep tonal range and a durability to match the often millennium-old subject matter.

60 of her majestic tree images were recently published in a book called Ancient Trees; Portaits Of Time.
