Howard Parker – London on Kentmere 400

A few months ago I went on a little trip to London to chill out, explore, take in some art galleries, and most importantly, take photos! I had four rolls of Kentmere film and three days to kill it off with. The results are below, but of course let me know what you think – be as honest as you like – keep the insults coming thick and fast. Oh, and if you have enjoyed my work you can check more of my photos out on my website at howard-parker.com

Check back next month for something interesting about a very special Polaroid camera I’ve spent a long time putting together…
