For our latest Guest Photo Editor piece, we turn to the instant photography of Ashley Stanford.

Ashley originally comes from Houston, Texas, and has spent the past two years providing a great behind-the-scenes documentation of life on tour - mostly based in the UK but also in her native Houston (and other US shows). All the shots in this feature are taken on a Polaroid-esque Instax camera, though she also takes some interesting film photography live shots; the whole package providing an acute snapshot of a musical subculture.

Instead of superfluous words, we'll let the photographs themselves do the talking below. Suffice to say, photography should always be this fun.
