During Feb 2009 Simon fled a snowy London and travelled across 5 American states on a mad quest for the strange and very peculiar. He met, interviewed and photographed jesters, jokers, crazed hoarders, automata collectors, strippers, mechanical geniuses, several stars of magic, the inventor of the first ever computer game and a private astronaut.
He said, "It was supposed to be my holiday but turned into damn hard work and about the most fascinating and fun time I have had in years!" Simon’s amazing photos and interviews appeared in Bizarre Magazine over the next 12 months as full length features.
Also included here is Bizarre Magazine's exclusive feature with Simon and the House of Magic.
