Another shot from the same day as the previous posts. I’m still not sure if this image works – I love the strange arrangements of objects: cider bottle, hot dog and cup of orange juice. Then also the guy in the dark glasses is lying down in an odd spot. Though at a festival when people sit or sprawl everywhere I’m not sure why it struck me as odd – perhaps because he is lying in the path of the food truck? Lastly I love the way his glasses are, or are made into mirrors, hiding his eyes and creating a slightly mysterious image.
Taken at a one day music festival in North London. I think I’d loaded my camera with colour film with the plan to take snapshots, but wound up wandering about taking documentary photos. I don’t remember if I aimed my camera at this group of friends or if they accosted me and asked to have their picture taken. I remember feeling slightly guilty as I was aware they were all quite drunk, but maybe it made more sense to them than it did to me.
Taken at the food market at Camden – which until I blundered across it, I had no idea existed. What I really like about this scene is the way the two stalls look badly collaged together without much care about matching the height of the two stalls and the people inside. But this is how it was. It also gives the same effect experienced in the Hitchcock film, Rear Window in that the people seen in their separate stalls cannot also see one another.
