  • Julia Margaret Cameron - pioneer of artistic photography

    - 12 months ago
    "BETWEEN TWO ISLANDS: JULIA MARGARET CAMERON AND HER CIRCLE" By Adam Yamey A chance encounter with an inventor of photography led to JULIA MARGARET CAMERON (1815-1879) becoming a pioneering artistic photographer. Her work transformed photography from the straightforward, unimaginative copying of nature into a creative artform. Born in Kolkata (Calcutta) with British, Bengali, and French ancestry, she was educated in France, married in India, worked in England, and di…

  • A floral extravaganza

    At the Isabella Plantation (Richmond Park)
    A FLORAL FEAST IT IS THAT TIME of year again, maybe a little earlier than usual because of the changing meteorological conditions, which are of great concern these days. Located in the southwest part of Richmond Park is one of London’s floral miracles: The Isabella Plantation (see: , for a shorth history). It is at its colourful best at the end of April and in early May. During this period, the camellia, azalea, and rhodode…

    SRIRANGAPATNA (SERINGAPATNAM) IS A town on an island in the River Kaveri in the state of Karnataka in southern India. I have been there several times as it is near a holy spot (the ‘sangam’, where three streams meet) where ashes of deceased Hindus, including those of my parents-in-law, are ceremoniously deposited in the waters of the Kaveri. The town near the sangam was the capital of the realm ruled by Tipu Sultan (1750-1799). This former capital of a great ruler is full of impressive architect…

    Between 1965 and 1970, I studied at Highgate School (founded 1565). Its main Victorian gothic building perches on the summit of Highgate Hill. About two fifths of a mile south east of the school, an architecturally unexceptional late Victorian residential building stands on Cromwell Avenue (number 65). Although this brick edifice may not look special, it harbours the ghosts of a lesser-known episode in the history of India’s struggle for independence from the British Empire. The only thing that…

    My new book
    Albanian people live all over the Balkans and in the Middle East, not to mention those who have migrated to Western Europe and the USA in the last two centuries. After being ruled by a series of foreign invaders over the millennia, some of them now live in independent countries, which are governed by Albanians: the recently formed Republic of Kosova ('established' 2008), and the longer-established Republic of Albania ('established' 1912). Adam Yamey's book, "Rediscovering Albania", is about the…

  • SCRABBLE WITH SLIVOVITZ - Once upon a time in Yugoslavia

    - 23 Aug 2013
    “ Nostalgia is like a grammar lesson: you find the present tense, and the past perfect! ” So said either Owens Lee Pomeroy OR Robert Orben, or maybe both! Adam Yamey visited Yugoslavia frequently over a period of more than 20 years. He criss-crossed the country from the caves of Slovenia to the peaks of Mount Trebević in Bosnia, from the lake at Mljet to that in Ohrid, from the ramparts of Dubrovnik to those of Kalemegdan in Belgrade, from Marshal Tito’s birthplace in Kumrovec to Alban…
