The Big Sleepover

Last weekend I was busy photographing The Big Sleepover in Myatts’ Fields, Camberwell and here’s a little snippet of the day.

Want to know more about The Big Sleepover? Here’s what Father Nature has to say about it:

“Your local park may be a familiar daytime haunt, but imagine being able to spend a summer night sleepover there when everyone else has gone home: you’re camping out, building a fire, enjoying storytelling and games with other local families.

Father Nature gives low/no income families a taste of camping in the great outdoors… on their doorstep… and for free! With tents and sleeping bags for all, and park security provided by the Army Reserves, each year 100 local families are invited to camp for a night in the park accompanied by workshops on fire-lighting and cooking, gardening, storytelling and much more, all with dinner and breakfast next day thrown in.”

Urban Art Fair review

Urban Art Fair review, little mention on the Photofusion blog.

“A photographer who also likes alternative printing processes is Estelle Vincent. A few of her works – beautiful black and white portraits from the series ‘Elles’ – displayed at Urban Art are created using liquid emulsion. A lot of her work is film based and she likes experimenting with toy camera.”
