This photograph of a childhood friend (Zib, her sister Katie and I all finished up our high school years together at Friends School, Saffron Walden), was made during the same Duckspool trip that I photographed Sebastian, and the Bathroom Window. Buxton can be a quirky paper, as is apparent in the highlight tones on Zib’s face. These irregularities have only shown up in certain production batches and may have to do with inconsistent sizing.
