Photoshoot from 1980

These are shots from a John Cooper Clarke photoshoot in March 1980

I was a third year student on the BA Design course at North Staffordshire Polytechnic and working on a magazine project .  I suggested to my tutor that I would quite like to do the feature on JCC and he just picked up the phone and started ringing round.  I was amazed when everyone said yes. What!

A couple of days later I jumped on a train and rocked up at Judy Totton's office ( the Bards agent ) near London bridge.  Green army surplus jacket, big hair and beard - a 1980 hipster if there ever was one!

Armed with an Olympus OM1 and a bag full of film and absolutely no experience - we were faced with a wall of grey weather - Ouch. So down the tube we went. Literally.

They have been sat languishing in a folder for 40 years which is a shame - so I gave myself a kick, got them scanned and here we are.

 

Would you like one?

I'd like them to be seen so if you'd like a copy I've sourced a pro photo lab who produce quality fine art prints on museum quality Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308.  The paper is acid free with no optical brighteners and the  wood frames are individually made for each order.

For anyone who wants a lower cost print they also do a great value A3 Fuji Pro DPII Lustre.

30cm x 40cm  £60
40cm x 55cm  £75
55cm x 75cm  £95
