This month we welcome a past Now Then artist who continues to refine his craft – Nathan Gibson. Nathan provided photography for our 34th issue back in January 2010 and has been providing the odd image for Now Then since way before then. Currently based in Leeds, his photos take a look at a diverse range of subjects, from protest to very personal portrait pieces and commissioned work.

We have articles on asylum, the Council’s Fairness Commission, Sharrow Lantern Carnival and the election in the Democratic Republic of Congo, as well as a witty piece from comedian Freddie Quinne entitled ‘Lock and Key’, a piece on funding cuts at Museums Sheffield, a special Guilty Pleasures themed Filmreel page and an interview with violin virtuoso Andrew Bird. If you are a soup fan, take a look at our recipes and Cassie Kill’s piece on the Grow Your Own movement in the Food section.
