I printed this from my Grandpa’s old negatives earlier in the month. It depicts my grandparents before they were married, with friends in Fiji, probably 1958 or early 1959.
Monday Music - the beautiful FEZ soundtrack by Disasterpeace. I could have picked any of the songs but decided to start with the first. If you like it you can listen to the whole thing here.

Analogue Recurring, an annual analogue film night at Lo & Behold, Shoreditch in London, returned on Friday 18 July with yet another fantastic programme.
My favourites were an exquisite piece called RGB by Guisy Pirrotta, a 16mm film of photograph sculptures of gardens which looked like they were from a dream or a distant memory.
OXO XOXO by Karel Doing was a really clever 16mm double screening film which used imagery of Xs and Os, including the OXO tower and London Eye, set to a rhythm which seemed to work perfectly.
Lastly Bea Haut’s Passage was another double screen 16mm piece where the artist took various objects towards the middle of the double screen, disappearing into the void. It worked really well partly because it wasn’t a mirror image, rather the actions were mirrored.
Unfortunately I had to leave before the second half so no doubt missed out on some gems, but I thoroughly enjoyed the first half, and hope I have something to submit again next year!
Incredible Iceland - Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon and Gullfoss waterfall are must visits.
