I spent loads of time and money leaning to expose, process and print black and white, locked in the darkroom, TriX and Kentmere 3 or 4 - were a winner - these images have sat in boxes and files for 25 years, so perhaps its time some of them were seen.
This shot was taken at the Gay Pride (London) march in the late 1980’s/90’s, I went annually, taking my shots with flash to encourage people to pose in the limelight.
I am now a ‘turncoat’ and have gone digital, however film has a unique quality and craft and thought process.
I’m getting nostalgic.
