Below is one of Miniclick’s documentary photographs of all the work ready waiting to be part of someone’s book.  And you can just about make out my photo in the middle of the shot (hanging sideways, behind the giant ear!)

As a photographer I think there’s something quite exciting about giving up a photograph to the unknown, for someone else can use it to tell their own story.
