In the early 1980s at the Berkshire College of Art & Design I was handed a Nikon F3 – I had no idea how to use it but I was about to find out. For me, this was the start of something special – this website shows some of what happened next.
In the early 1990s the Jericho Tavern in Oxford placed itself firmly on the musical map as the venue that played a major part in the rise to fame of bands such as Radiohead and Supergrass – along the way many other soon-to-be-famous bands played the venue, including The Verve, Pulp and The Cranberries.
Along with the famous names, this collection features many local bands including ATL, Human Torches, Madamadam and Sevenchurch.
All images in this series were shot on Olympus OM1 and OM2 cameras, using whatever film stock was to hand, mostly Ilford FP4, HP5 and various colour negative and positive films.
Most of the images in this section were shot on Fuji FP-100C and FP-3000B film, using the recovered negative process and scanned using an Epson V700.
Cameras used include a Polaroid 110B, Polaroid 600SE, Graflex Speed Graphic, Polaroid 180 and Polaroid 350.
All images on this website are available to purchase as silver gelatin, Giclée or C-type prints– please enquire for options and pricing.
