In the summer of 2013 my friends found a piece of derelict land and moved in and built the area in to a spot by hand. The spot was built using left over material on the site then finished with hand mixed concert brought by a few the committed. The summer was long and the weather was some of the best for years. The DIY spot and mentality inspired me to document the summer in a DIY fashion. I shot the summer on 35mm film and an old Canon AV-1, developed by hand at the end of my kitchen and then scanned. The summer was captured in this book of thirty six photographs.
