Echos from the past

During the 1970s I had a studio in St Catharine's Dock opened up for artists by Bridget Riley and Peter Sedgley. I sensed that something dreadful was about to happen to me and often walked the streets around the dock rather than working in my studio. I took these in one day in a kind of stupor, embarrassed by feelings of remoteness from other people. They are unlike anything I had been taught to look at, not following any traditional rules of framing images.

They were taken while walking around the Tower of London. They are 35 mm slides that are no longer in use; I found them in an old shoebox among a few other collections of photographs I had taken as a student and young teacher.

Richard was the first person to look at them with anything other than a passing glance after they had aged somewhat in their hidden world.

It's grim down south. 2 men walk past an aged onlooker.
