This is one of the only one of my really old photographs to survive. It won a photographic competition in 1973 in Northampton. I had access to a free darkroom at that time and experimented a lot. This was one of a series of images deliberately taken at a distance and was a very small part in the centre of the negative. It was enlarged via some copying onto positive film in order to emphasise the grain structure. Not all that different from my “Conversations” paintings of 2015 onwards.
