A DAY AT THE RACES
A day at the races
I named this work after the Marx Brothers film . It is a very old work , about 20something years old . It was made using a nice little 35 mm film camera , the famous OLYMPUS XA 2 . The photos were taken at the Faliron horse racing track . I had then noticed and liked two things : the way the light was falling on the punters and the fact that they were so absorbed that they never had noticed my presence during the few days this project took place . I love this series because I reckon it is the closest thing to mainstream photography I have ever done .
