I never wanted to go to the Isle of Wight. I didn't have anything against the place per se, but we didn't have the time nor money to do the trip I had planned, so this is where we ended up for a family holiday last September during our last week overseas.
In the end, I didn't mind going. Let's face it, it was the Isle of Wight or another week in Wolverhampton. What I found when I got there stunned me. Narrow country lanes, picture postcard villages, deserted coastal paths, decrepit seaside piers, ancient castles, chairlifts, steam trains, amusement arcades, beautiful gardens, cream teas: this was the England of yesteryear. I bloody loved it.
When I got back to Australia I had my film developed and scanned. When I saw the results, I knew this was the opportunity I had been waiting for, and I put together my first film photography zine Every Summer.
Find out all about the zine and the locations that inspired it in this episode of Matt Loves Cameras. You can buy a copy of Every Summer on my website https://mattlovescameras.com
