Clive Boursnell

Boursnell has been getting some press for his new book Covent Garden: The Fruit, Vegetable and Flower Market.

Now overrun with tourists and the enterprises as well as the design that caters to them, Covent Garden is a shadow of its former utilitarian self. The photographs that I've seen in the Guardian and especially in Design Week are reminiscent of Venice--a connection that is especially strong when considering Venice's history.
