Parisian market

Must be great fun being a stylist on a film set when the scale is so large, I've worked with stylists and model makers on more modest stills shoots and in the process visited prop hire warehouses with photographers, full of the old, weird and wonderful.

It's bursting with character John: is that a tumbrill?
John Prior: I think tumbrils are a little larger, with sides, especially the ones that visited Madam Guillotine

A step back in time John brilliantly captured.
John Prior: Most of the work had been done for me, no doubt setting this up was a labour of love.
