During the seven years I lectured at UCA I regularly photographed Fashion workshops. These two images are some outtakes from the Creative Careers in Fashion workshop which introduced a group of students from Medway schools and colleges to the world of fashion; from design to shoot.
This is a rubbish picture from my first ever exhibition (…which was also pretty rubbish). It was 1998 in Café Woodstock, Norrköping, Sweden. I made the frames myself whilst on work-experience with the curators at Norrköping’s Art Museum.
This was one of the first times my images were published. It was a 1998 issue of the Swedish photography magazine Tidningen FOTO which I used to buy every month. Most of the images at that point were either cross-processed slide-film or, when black & white, printed on grade 4 or 5.
I cringe reading it now because I was so ridiculously pretentious…
