The Photo Elective – Gloucester City, NJ

Gloucester - 1982Back when I was majoring in illustration at the art school formerly known as The Philadelphia College of Art, we were required to take a photography elective. We shot black and white film; developed the negatives and made prints. The assignments were fairly tedious, but not as tedious as the faux art and ironic juxtapositions that naive art students figured were expected in a big city art school. What’s more interesting are the shots I made just to finish out a roll of film. That’s what I was doing here. I was on my way to school on a NJ Transit bus and killing off a roll of Pan-X.

    Processing the film wasn’t so bad. Getting to one of the few enlargers to make prints was a somewhat more challenging.
