Birmingham England March 2014: Photorealism exhibition. I snapped this shot as I approached the gallery to see this exhibition, using ‘Agfa’ branded film in my Russian toy camera. The paintings were fascinating, and some were very similar to my photographs from the 1980s, especially the American ones on my other blog. I don’t see myself as an artist, though, merely a recorder of what I see in the world in my photographs, hoping they will be an interesting reference for others in the future.
