’Whatever you do, do it with onions’ was Jean Stanguennec’s motto. The French Institute hosts an exhibition dedicated to his memory. The exhibition includes family photographs, very rare onions and exclusive footage shot by one of his sons including the ’Spinck and Span’ series.

Claiming to be part of the (Franco-)Scottish heritage, the Stanguennec cousins also paid a visit to the newly re-opened National Museum of Scotland for some ’photos-souvenirs’ shot by Albie Clark from The Photographers Collective.
