Hunting & Gathering

Whilst happily browsing at Kraftbomb last month, I came across a beautifully presented stall - lovely china ornaments, old suitcases, vintage tablecloths and pretty packaging. It was run by Husband-Wife team Hunter Gatherer, otherwise known as Gem & Nathaniel.

With names like 'I am the smell of roses at your tea party' and 'I am the chair in the sunroom where you read', their pretty bow clips and bow ties transport you to a certain time and place where ladies and gents take tea and scones with lashings of whipped cream.

Gem does lovely illustrations too - as you can see on the 'my woodland friends' cards, done in pen and watercolour.

Hunter Gatherer will be there again this Sunday - you should pop down and see them and all their lovely treasures...

Helena Sofia

Helena did some great photography for Shelley Thomson's 'Citrus 30' photoshoot project, which was featured in the 1st issue of Extra Curricular. Since then, Helena has gone on to win the Sony/AIPA student photography competition and has got her website up and running. Here are a few of her beautiful landscape images. I get the impression she is often up at dawn to get the perfect shot...
