An Institution Closes....

An Institution Closes....

by Peter Elgar

The closure of St Faith's Hospital Brentwood to make way for the Multi-Million Pound BT offices. I photographed the event for a local newspaper ( when they were giving out work!)I made a 20x16" print of this one, my favourite. Pentax ME Super+28mm f2.8 Pentax-M lens at full aperture, 1/8th second hand-held, available light, Orwo NP22 film, home-processed in PH 35 formula.

How sad and just typical of governments in this country. Its a good black & white image taken with excellent equipment and seems to me to portray the event of its era. Sad, but well captured.

Really tells the story very well - perhaps you could have moved a little to the right and capture of the sitting subject?
Photography is putting one’s head, one’s eye, and one’s heart on the same axis. HCB
K20D and various stuff.
