Congratulations to Melissa Cambell, who has been in touch with an update on her MG Magnette project. She managed to trace several previous owners and used their photos to make a short film to be shown at Brighton University for her MA Photography show.
She says: "We managed to drive the car into the gallery, so people could sit on the back seat and watch the film!"
It's currently on show at the excellent Towner Gallery, in Eastbourne, as part of the East Sussex Open exhibition. Thousands of people have visited the show, and Melissa reports it has had a great response.
The film has also been nominated for this year’s Magnum/PhotoLondon graduate award, shortlisted for Bloomberg New Contemporaries, and selected for Source Photographic Magazine’s graduate review.
Melissa says: "I have also made a book, containing the photographs and email correspondence from the previous owners. This has been exhibited in photography exhibitions in London and Athens! I hope to show it at other galleries and museums over the coming year."
