Another fantastic place is the Tin Drum Book Shop, located on Narborough Road. We're hoping that most of you know this book shop, it is just marvellous. The Tin Drum is the pinnacle of vintage book shops, and it's right here in Leicester! Shelves stacked all the way to the ceiling, to the floor, every square inch of this quirky small book shop is covered in fiction, art, literature, sci-fi, old classics, language books, photography books *wink wink nudge nudge* foreign affairs, magazines and poetry.
These are the types of engaging places Shelf Life is all about. Do you know anywhere you'd like to photograph? Independent and unusual shops? Well!! Glad you asked! This SUNDAY 6TH DECEMBER, Leicester Lo-Fi are meeting up in Clarendon Park for a social event doing exactly this. Come along if you've got nothing on this Sunday, we'll teach you how to use the medium format required for the Shelf Life project.
The current exhibition of all 8 photographs done thus far, reside at Lo-Fi's headquarters in Manor House, just off Haddenham Road, just off Narborough Road. You can see them in their full glory every Tuesday 6 - 9pm. We would LOVE to have more for the wall, so why not join us this Sunday 6th December along Queen's Road in the quintessentially independent cafe known as Fingerprints! This is presently our meeting point for Sunday, coinciding nicely with Clarendon Park's Christmas Fair! There will be a bucket load of things going on to keep everyone entertained!
