It was a common feature of second hand book shops that there would be a box of postcards, a box of discarded photographs, miscellaneous snaps often slipped into books as book marks and other pictorial oddments. Hollyeyman and Treacher had a large shelf over a back door where enormous and often beautifully bound photograph albums lay undisturbed in a thick layer of dust. The above selection marks the material I picked up over the years with no pretence to aesthetic significance, but with a certain poignancy in entering their world.

 

The Norfolk Album Number 3 however are special, the productions of a talented amateur who printed beautifully on art paper, giving many of isi/her Norfolk photographs a texture of canvas, but without losing detail. Oriole found them on Norwich Market one happy day. I have been obsessed with an image of an old barn seen from outside which I used with ominous sound on my first 360 degree panorama of a sodden landscape on Director back in the days.
