Astrid Schulz: The Magic Man

Who is he, that Magic Man? Will he be able to help us with enchanting our lives – or does he need help to entangle his own? If you would like to know a typical day-to-day scenario in the life of a bewitched magician, then come to Davenports Magic Shop and view his tricks through the window.

The Magic Man is a joint photography project by actor Philip Philmar, and photographer Astrid Schulz, commissioned by Bill Roy from Davenports. Images of weird and wonderful magical moments are on show at Davenports, which was established in 1898, making it the oldest magic business in the world.
