Wonderland, Haddenham Steam Rally

Wonderland, Haddenham Steam Rally

September 10, 2019

I visited Haddenham Steam Rally in 1993 and the pictures are part of my series 'A View of the Fens from the Car with Wings'. It's certainly a place of the weird and wonderful, a step back in time where technology through the ages is celebrated, particularly steam of course.

"You will find over 600 exhibits from steam engines, Vintage Cars, stationary engines, vintage tractors and Lorries, to the old tyme fair, which for some years has included Rules steam driven Gallopers, one of the finest sets in the country and Ken Foxes world famous "Wall of Death"." source from haddenhamsteamrally.co.uk 

I wasn't really there for the steam but for the vintage cars, caravans and the old tyme fair. I found some really exciting things to photograph to add to my ongoing series 'A View of the Fens from the Car with Wings'. It was a tricky shoot because I only had one shot on one roll of Kodak Ektar 100, when I tried to buy some more there was none in the country. So I went into my film fridge and brought a selection of film with me, some Fujicolor SuperG100 and Kodak Gold which might have been in my fridge for 26 years so we will have to wait to see the results.

I like how looking out the window at Manhattan on this misty night has created a vast intense cinematic city in the sky feel.

My reason for being there was the Hot Heads East Hot Rod Club Drag Racing Event. As a fan of the sport I visited as a photographer to capture authentic Drag Racing.

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.
