Tate, a young lad I knew once who was addicted to piercing. He would pierce something, wear it for a few weeks – take it out and pierce something else.

piercing, needle

In the 1990’s photography for me was about SLR’s & dark rooms, it was about printing your shots at 3-6am to ‘beat the light’ in you homemade darkroom to get your shots to press. I worked in music, hair and a little news, but love portraiture. Now I use a digital slr, but try to replicate shot control like in the old film days. I now longer make my living out of photography, but prefer to better my life by embracing a passion ;)

    Excellent B&W Marky, love the graininess!

  • yes – you could push any film to give you grain – the focus on the needle was my fav bit of this one – although as an image I’ve always found it confronting..

    I could think of better things to get addicted to. Must really have been into pain.
