The @totalrefreshmentcentre has been one of the best music centres in London for the last 6 years. Unfortunately Hackney Council have not allowed them a new licence and so the live venue has shut. Community spaces like this are really important for giving creative people a place to meet and work. I produced a series of portraits to remember all the faces who have helped make this place so special.
1: Austin us a sound engineer who’s kind mum donated the grand piano to the TRC. 2: @rayreduced is a graphic designer/promoter/DJ who has brought all these different skills to countless nights. 3: @emmalwarren1 is a Journalist/Writer/Radio host who is working on a book about the history of the TRC, stay tuned!

Wetzlar.com 2018 Top 5 Leica Award Countdown! At number 4, this year’s award goes to the M7! 2018 will be remembered as the year the music died for this M, Leica announced this year that the M7 will no longer be produced, and you will lose if you snooze because in the last few months very few M7 are left with regular prices on store shelves. For actual use this is the easiest and well built Leica film camera to with its auto shutter speed. For the collectors or limited edition fans, the M7 has far fewer limited editions than the M6 so this will add a lot of value. Take this still ‘relatively’ easy to find today M7 Titan which is a solid titanium, superbly built and lighter than the regular version, comes with a rare Summilux 50mm Asph edition that has the focus knob, and that solid titanium cap alone is absolutely beautiful and costs more than 200 pounds IF you can find a replacement.................... #🔴 #leica#leicam7
