Rik Moran must burn a lot of shoe leather. 
 
While some photographers are content plying their trade from the comfort of a studio ("Can you get us a Nando's, babes?"), Rik follows a differet path – literally. His 'studio' is the urban environment, the cities in which we live in and things that we build – and often leave behind. 
 
In a trio of new books, Flâneurism ('to flâneur' is basically to stroll for its own sake) Moran explores the Olympic Park at Athens (an absolutely tip-top investment there, chaps), the streets of Moscow and the Heygate estate in London's Elephant and Castle. His photographs capture the sights we often ignore, forcing us to revaluate what's going on. 
 
"Flâneurism is a celebration of the unseen, hidden and uncelebrated" says Rik. "It connects photography and the journey of the flâneur via digital and physical mediums. It's
existed online since 2014 with a large archive of photography from locations as far and wide as Tokyo, Bogota and Moscow."
 
If you want to find out about Rik's flaneuric adventures, then we'd advise you to head off to his site, which is an adventure in itself.
 
And the books, which are only seven pounds, can be bought from here. What a brilliant achievement.
