Zib Edgley, facing the breeze. Frome, Somerset. 1989.Sebastian Mera, Duckspool, Somerset. 1989.
Pt-pd print on 100% cellulose (Buxton paper) from original 8×10 negative.
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.
