"Katy take the Biscuit" by Michael Coles

John questions whether the digitalisation of practically everything is cheapening our memories. Physical items have a history and provide insight into the time that item was owned and used. Perhaps the return of vinyl records will be the start of a resurgence of other physical items that are now all but digitalised… bring back film!

St George (Marble Arch, London)  by Peter Moyse

Sissinghurst by Peter Moyse - Rolleiflex 2.8F
