  • Most people today are desperate for the newest, flashiest and the latest of modern technology. However, there is a growing community of those who appreciate the old - I bought this polaroid camera for £9 and they are incredibly special. Each shot has to be special to you - it makes you stop, think and be precious about what you capture, isn’t that what photography is about?

  • Bendable wire is good fun to twist and shape into whatever accessory you like, the coiled “ring” always looks edgy and unusual.
