Archive photo: Brixton, July 1990

©Neil Turner. July 1990, Angell Town Estate, Brixton

I was shooting a piece about the work being done by some amazing community volunteers in conjunction with outreach workers employed by the Local Education Authority around one of Brixton’s many estates and we were being ‘buzzed’ by some boys on bicycles just out enjoying themselves. Neither of the boys in this picture were the subjects of the work involved so the picture didn’t really add to the story but I have always liked it and I thought that it would make a good picture to post here.

I had posted this image on Twitter a while ago and I think that I mis-captioned the date. Checking the negatives today, it should have said July 1990.

The camera would have probably been a Nikon F3P with a 24mm f2 Nikkor and Kodak Tri-X film but I am not entirely sure because at the same time I had FM2 bodies and a Leica M6 as well.
