'57 Pink Cadillac, Guyhirn, 2019

September 02, 2019

For the first time in a long time I returned to my autobiographical project 'A View of the Fens from the Car with Wings', the foundations of which were born from my family drives in the Fens on a Sunday, looking for the unusual, something we call "Fen Hunting". On the Sunday of the Bank Holiday I was drawn to a place called Guyhirn, I met the fruit and vegetable seller David Payne, who I previously photographed 26 years before and who has been selling produce there for 60 years. Next along the road we spotted a beautiful pink Cadillac, we stopped to photograph it and it turned out I knew the owner from my Drag Racing days at Santa Pod so it was great to catch up with him and make a deeper connection with this Fen Village.

In this picture I am handholding to photograph it with a Nikon FM3.

Conventionally all our framed work is dry-mounted onto aluminium. This ensures a very flat image surface in the short and the long term. The prints are matted (window mounted) using a museum quality 100% cotton rag board especially manufactured to be compatible with the C-type archival Kodak photographic paper Richard uses. He makes the prints in his own dark room. The print sizes are taken from traditional photographic paper sizes. Traditionally with photographic prints they are signed and numbered on the back, they can be signed on the front of the mount by request.
