Two negatives combined to create one image. Nigh time Nottingham and a studio shot, both taken on Kodak Vericolor II Professional Type S medium format colour negative film.
Venue: The Mill, a Nottingham nightclub near the centre of town. As well as the latest 80s music they had light displays and smoke machines. This image was used in an article in the September 1983 edition of the British Journal of Photography about the final diploma show at Trent Polytechnic.
Luckily I dont think it was a windy day. Health and safety standards for demolition have certainly changed since. Taken on a walk to nowhere in particular. I enjoyed walking with my camera and capturing what I saw along the way.
The Lake District. Fellow ex Cowley pupils, perhaps 1981. We had gone our separate ways to college/university/polytechnic but met back up in the Summer for a few days. In the car on the way up from St.Helens we played an Imagination tape none stop, “body talk” and “just an illusion” being favorites. Some enjoyed a swim in the freezing water, I just kept my camera dry.
I cannot reconcile my earlier documentary work and my later commercial work.
