The Return Of Bob Mazzer

November 18, 2014
by the gentle author

Bob Mazzer, the genius tube photographer, sent me his latest batch of photographs yesterday, in advance of his illustrated lecture at the Bishopsgate Institute on Thursday night, and these new pictures made laugh so much, I could not resist publishing them at once so you can enjoy them too.

Very friendly, happy to pose, and preserving her modesty

Lemon in the neck

The times they have a-changed …

… but Time itself never changes

Misery & …

… Contentment

Can’t quite remember where but it’s just at the bottom of an exit, and I hung around here for almost too long before I got this, as I couldn’t summon up the courage to ask and I didn’t want a pose

People pray a lot on the tube, this seems to be one of the commonest poses

This could have actually been Halloween, but every night on the tube is like Halloween …

If I had a guitar tattooed on my arm it would also be a Les Paul

I had to be quick before the doors shut, or the dog saw me …

Asleep at Edgware, the end of the line, and too late to get the train back to where you should have got off

Elegant madness, and also happy to pose!

Platform attendant, after hearing the public last train announcement that contradicted what he had just been told on the blower

That tablet glow …

… and that tablet … correlate!

The cameras they have a-changed

After asking if I could photograph his tattoos, this man and I spent a very civilised few minutes talking about football, of which I know next to nothing, and I got off the train elated

Ominous clothing

Bob Mazzer is showing his photographs in conversation with Archivist Stefan Dickers at the Bishopsgate Institute this Thursday 20th November at 7:30pm and a few tickets are still available.

    Love these! Our tube system is much maligned but such a brilliant service and always something to look at. When I think back, it now amazes me that we had smoking carriages and smoking on the platforms. How on earth did we breathe? Keep going Bob. If I ever see you I shall pose immediately.

    Love the photos, but it is rather frightening to see policemen armed to the teeth on the underground. Valerie
