Nik Roche adopts a highly immersive method for image making, shaped by his interest in social change and the impact of institutions on individual behaviour. Source Issue 103 ‘Life Stories’ features images from his project It’s hard to report a stolen bike stolen, which follows on from the work in his first monograph, The Budgie Died Instantly (Setanta Books, 2020).
Dr Annabella Pollen’s academic research areas include mass photography, popular image culture and histories of art, craft, design and dress, especially in relation to marginal, alternative and non-canonical visual and material forms. She is a Reader at University of Brighton and writes the Source online column Flea Market Photobooks.
