The King is dead…

Wednesday, August 16th, 2017



I’m no Elvis fan but I know lots of people have a very soft spot for The King and his music. For many, the anniversary of his death today is a significant one so I thought I’d show a few images that I made at an Elvis convention some years ago in Blackpool as a mini tribute. Once upon a time I was shooting a good deal on a rather lovely 5×4 Horseman Camera with Polaroid Type 55 (pos/neg) instant film. Working that way allowed me to shoot rather formal – but unexpectedly beautiful images that I could peel apart and then give to the subject (whilst shoving the negative in a big tank of fixer). It was a lovely way to work but my back never forgave me for the weight of kit I had to lug about. Anyway, here’s a triptych of some of the work…





ps. You might like to look at another image of Elvis fans that I made years ago that I featured on this blog in 2015…

Here are some images that I took the day you died. It’s all I have to offer and I hope that you like them.

Thanks for it all mate: I couldn’t have come this far without you.
