I have been trying to decide what to do with the black and white pictures I shot with my Rolleiflex of George Norris, a rag and bone man from Hull. Using the vintage camera, I felt like I’d stepped away from the safety net of 35mm digital raw files, the ability to shoot multiple frames, and checking the back of the camera to see if it all looked okay.
Just under a month has passed since this shoot and I’ve been able to immerse myself in other pictures. Vivian Maier: Anthology, ‘Grown Up in Britain – 100 Years of Teenage Kicks, Gustav Klimt at the Schloss Belvedere, and Egon Schiele and Koloman Moser at the Leopold Museum - all in Vienna - to name a few. Thrown in for good measure: a Covid hangover to muddy my thinking.
