About James Hill

Welcome to my website which showcases hundreds of my images. The images are arranged into separate "galleries" to make it easier for visitors to browse specific subjects and styles for eg Art Deco, Birds or Postage Stamps.
One gallery contains my original digital art and others, photographs of wildlife but the others consist of photographic images of existing artwork (but all more than 70 years of age so as not to infringe copyright law) be it tiny black and white adverts in a 1920's magazine, street signs in Berlin, beer mats and old postage stamps.
I have a particular fascination with old postage stamps. Not only are they often pictorially beautiful, but they also tell the story of an individual, a battle, an invention or a country and many other very important events in our collective history. It seems that visitors to this website share my enthusiasm for images of postage stamps are more frequently viewed than anything else
Please note that that I take a different approach from others in the making and presentation of images of postage stamps - I include both the perforations and the franking (if this is present). I do so, because I want to present the postage stamps in its full, recognisable form and not just as another picture. Perforations and franking (which sometimes shows the date and place of postage) add authenticity - the "patina" of the stamps (long) life, rather like the sheen on an 18th century bureau.
But by a happy coincidence, images of postage stamps are the latest "cool" thing, suggested by interior designers of top-end apartments, fashion stores and restaurants as well as the "must-have" feature accessory of starter homes - be it a single scatter cushion on the settee or large canvas print on the wall. .

I am married, with two children and live just outside London, UK.
