Paper tests. If you still miss rummaging through the stationery in Woolworths, pay a visit to Shepherds Bookbinders in Victoria. More paper stocks than you can dream about! Uncoated and not meant for inkjet printers, but some produce lovely soft-tone monochrome images. But make sure you test ;-).

Fritillaria meleagris or Snakeshead fritillary. Three colour gum bichromate print on watercolour paper.
CND rally, Trafalgar Square,1980. Scanning more early work from London. Originally from a folio I was putting together to approach news agencies.
From the archive, landscapes from 1981 on the Ridgeway National Trail, Hertfordshire. Shot on colour negative film and scanned.
Making a few hires scans from b/w negs….oh the joy of dust specs in the sky! Forgot about these.
Never published at the time, a selection of black and white images taken at the old race circuit at Reims, Northern France in September 1988, whilst on a shoot for Classic and Sportscar Magazine. We were photographing some classic Jaguars, including the XK 120 from The National Motor Museum, Gaydon. Reims was our playground for the afternoon, after French Police closed all surrounding roads to allow us to drive the old circuit. The circuit was closed in the late 1960’s, and has been left pretty much in its original state. (Click on any image to see full size gallery)
From two rolls of 35mm Kodak Tri X shot in 1985. More reference shots whilst searching for a car location in the City, near the Museum of London. This street, Little Britain, was boarded up, ready for demolition. I can’t remember why, but the location was never used in the end.
Not spring colour, but some infra red images from a roll taken whilst I was at college….circa 1980. They came to mind after a conversation this morning. Requiring the old E4 process, which was pretty much obsolete, even then, it was a bit of a palava to use. And expensive. But turning anything containing chlorophyll bright red, it was interesting to play with.
The full set of polymer gravure prints or photo etchings I have been making at East London Printmakers over the last few months. They will be included in the Wildlings exhibition at Oxford House, Bethnal Green.
