I was put onto the Summer Camp blog by Lauren Laverne on 6Music. I love looking at the photos, (and that's all there is,) page after page of wonderful American photos. Some make me howl, some of them make me want to weep, they're so tragic. It's the feeling of surrogate nostalgia I feel, at the moments captured here, that interests me; I don't know these people but I have an affinity with all the images somehow, being alive gives me that, I guess. Have a look yourself, forget OldBooth and forget Hipstamatic, this is the real deal and I love it, hope you like it too.

Chris Bourkes work ends up in London this week. East end clothing store, Number Six is displaying a number of his lino cuts from tomorrow. There's quite a nautical feel to alot of the clothes for sale in the shop, Chris's work will fit in nicely as it has it's roots in traditional naval tattoo imagery.
