The Brighton Lindy Hop festival has ran for the past 4 years, so this year we think it can be called an established event.
If you are not familiar with the dance Lindy Hop, the dance came out of Harlem in the 1920s. It was the merging of both the .....

Having a go with Film
It came as quite a challenge to start The Vintage News with no previous film-making, photographic, or journalism experience. 5 years into this project I thought it was about time to try working with a proper camera, with film and developing costs and.....
