Project log – Week 7 of Informing Contexts; 10th March to 16th March, 2018

I’m concerned about the difficulty I’m having recruiting new researchers and have become aware I could run a second sub-project concurrently with my existing one. I took a very reasonable shot back in January of an elderly local Croydon photographer who runs  a shop with his son that seems barely changed from when he opened it in 1959.

Provisionally entitled ‘Croydon Shopkeepers of distinction’ this week I’ve been walking a couple of miles assessing potential places. I’d like them to be distinctive, different from other shops that sell that type of good. There are some possibilities. One factor with my second-hand 120 format film Hasselblad that I need to take into account is the speed of film development. The place I took my test film to, Aperture, take almost a week to developed scan it.
