Souvenir- Photographs of Bath 1987-89
I moved to Bath in 1985 and took to up photography after some darkroom courses at the Watershed in Bristol. I soon began working for listings magazine 'Venue', and taking on freelance jobs like weddings, band promos etc. I also began developing/printing my own work in my Basement flat’s makeshift darkroom, which eventually became a printing/processing service called Blow-Up. With the daily crowds of visitors photographing the city’s beauty, I endeavoured to find the grit and reality for everyday working people, an antidote to the tourist image. This became my ongoing project for the next few years.
