The guy who ran photography had actually applied to teach illustration. He was a great draftsman. He took what he could get and hoped he could learn as he went along. A nice bloke, but he could be very dozy.                       Back

A student, I think his name was Robert Taylor, set up a performance around the idea of a cocktail party. He got booze and nibbles, brought people in from outside, a lot of organization. The tutor took photos during it as conversational images, informal, capturing moments of people coming together. The next day the tutor apologised to Taylor, he'd forgotten to put film in the camera.

I'd never taken photos before and I found the whole process magical. It was like going to a playground everyday. I used mirrors and reflectors off bycycles up against the camera lense. Afterwards I made screen prints from the images, all very Foundation.
