Taken in the early nineties I took photos of objects like this – so that the object is isolated in space. This is a child’s cap gun found in a junk shop.
Rear of a deserted cinema. I went to this cinema as a child. Later it became a bingo hall but by the time of the photo it had been closed prior to renovation as flats. Despite the fact that this shows the rear of the building it still has a kind of functional Art Deco beauty like a spaceship or ocean liner.
I’m not sure why I decided to take a self-portrait of the back of my head but I did and strangely both of these shots work. At the time I was annoyed, once the film was developed, to see that the dress label is showing in some of the pictures, otherwise I find these pictures have a pleasing lyricism.
