A unique photo book of lockdown memories has been published by three MK photographers to raise money for a local special needs project.

Freddie Guilmard had a vision back in 1999 to create a photo book for the millennium, but he never got round to it.

Now, 21 years later and during lockdown, he teamed up with Jane Russell Photography and Tim Lee to make the book happen.

'Life Through a Lens' is limited edition photo book filled with images that represented life in lockdown for the people in Milton Keynes

Funny, poignant, sad and inspiring, it brings to life a gamut of emotions, covering everything from stockpiling toilet rolls to walking in the countryside.

The talented trio have launched a fundraising page to sell copies of the book for a minimum donation of £15, and profits will be donated to MK SNAP Special Needs Advancement Project. Already more than £1,400 has been raised.

Sadly MK SNAP lost three of their young learners during the Covid pandemic - Romini, Isi and Gemma.
