Last month Clive Porter thought his photographic career was over when his camera, SD cards and memory sticks were stolen from the boot of his car.
Although he vowed he would never return to photography, friends urged him to continue taking pictures to help him regain his confidence.
He said: “ For a while I had no inclination of ever picking up a camera again.
“However, numerous folk influenced me to give it another try, and not to allow the perpetrators to win.
“I would like to thank the many people, including the wonderful staff at the Melbourn Hub who helped to coax me back to some sort of normality.
