Not all grannies are built the same. Meet Emily Heathcote’s grannie. Emily, a student at Surrey Institute of Art and Design, has won a Stella Dry/i-D Magazine competition with this shot of gran, a bottle and a lighter. Judges, including Ron Arad and Tomato’s Graham Wood, decided Emily best met the `Strong Yet Light’ brief with her piece called Le Ptomane, after the infamous French music-hall act Joseph Pujol, who could fart to order.

An exhibition of her work and that of other entrants is now on show at Freedom caf, 60 Wardour Street, London W1.
