    The Glass Passport – Trade

    20th August 2016

    Travelling the world as what he calls “a ‘live in’ photographer” and charging for his work in “three alternative currencies – food, beds and plane tickets”, Richard Tilney-Bassett calls his project The Glass Passport.

    We loved the idea, and are pretty hopeless with the camera ourselves, so we struck up a deal – we traded accommodation for pictures, with fantastic results.

    Richard’s blog showcases some of the best images he captured during his time with us, and you’ll see more cropping up across our website and social media soon.
