Jocks & Nerds Exhibition

 

Lewis Leathers is currently hosting an exhibition of photographs by Marcus Ross, Editor-in-Chief of Jocks & Nerds website and soon to be magazine. Marcus opted for Lewis Leathers Wearers as his theme and shot a series of photographs here early last December (see earlier blog post). The exhibition will run at the Lewis Leathers shop until the end of August. See below for some of the actual photographs along with some photos of the opening party, which was a lot of fun!

Marcus shot his photographs on Polaroid 665 negative film which had been kept in his freezer for the past few years due to the fact that it was well past it's sell by date.
