I took this picture 1986. I can’t remember the name of the model, I didn’t know her, she heard that I was taking photographs. When I look at it now I’m amazed how she anticipated this Amy-Whinehouse-look. (Which of course is „retro“ by itself)
My camera was an all-manual Minolta 35 mm SLR. I shot on Ilford ISO 50 to get the best resolution. I developed the film myself and did the prints. I was young and I was ambitious. I had absolutely no clue what I tried to achieve. I even printed on baryte papers and miracuosly succeeded, despite the shitty and rotten darkroom which belonged to my old school and was abandoned years ago.
