Self-Portrait Circa 1982

Self-portrait 1982Back in the 1980s, I went to art school, and I along with all of the other illustration majors were required to take a minor course in photography. We had to shoot the photos as well as process the negatives and make prints. I don’t recall what the particulars of the class assignments were although I can tell from looking at the negatives which were the assignments and which ones were shot just to finish off a roll. The shots to finish a roll are a lot more interesting. While my fellow students mostly resided and shot their photographs in the vibrant metropolis of Philadelphia, I lived and did most of my shooting in and around the staid and solid small town of Westville, New Jersey. Here’s a self-portrait of me standing in the kitchen of my parents’ home that stood in Westville. Sadly, the house no longer stands having been demolished to make way for a convenience store parking lot.

For those wondering, I was watching Doctor Who on the New Jersey Network’s Channel 23. Uncle Floyd used to follow.
