There was a time when Cinema was my one true love; my heart beat 24 frames per second. But I have other loves now and Cinema has become more of an artefact of memory. I admire those who have remained monogamous to Cinema, searching longer and further for the rarefied gems. Time travelling archivists on behalf of us all, bringing back wonders across time and place.

Here are the works I conjure up with my mind's eye. Still as enthralling as the very first time.
