Photographer Melissa Campbell contacted me and I'm very pleased to be able to share her photos. She writes:
"Still Life is an ongoing photographic project based on my car, a 1964 MG Magnette, BMO 588B. I plan to tell the story of the car's life, building up a narrative through photographs.
I hope to track down the previous owners, with the aim of recording their photographs of the car, taken over the last 50 years."
She's already gathered a folder full of every piece of paperwork relating to the car, including some magazine cuttings. A large number of these came from previous owner Neil Cairns who sent photos, including this one of a classic family picnic. Neil was involved in the MG Owners Club and showed the Magnette at a number of car shows.
