Beautiful Bella

Continuing our TEN-A Decade In Images week in the run up to the Cambridge Folk Festival, here is what the lovely Bella Hardy has to say about it: “Nick’s photographs capture a festival performance feeling which is so hard to put into words; it’s something primal, a feeling fuelled by adrenaline and fear and the way the crowd spurs you on.  It’s an honour to…

Available in a standard…
