Dudu Pukwana and John Stevens during a break from their recording session at The Glass Trap, Southall, Middlesex, England, January 14 1987
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.
