Thomas – “I fell in love with photography in my teens, which was in the mid sixties when photography was becoming popular and trendy, with people like David Bailey and Terence Donovan becoming the new pop stars of the art. As a youth I always fantasised about owning a Rolleiflex, like ‘Bailey’, but could never afford it. I bought my first camera, a Yasica Minister 11 rangefinder and just took pictures of anything that took my fancy. Later, In the 70s, I upgraded to a Canon AE1 and took photos of the demolition sites around Ancoats in Manchester, carnivals in Moss Side, and political demos in Manchester and London. These days I do mostly street photography and use both film and digital. I have also realised my 60s dream of buying a Rolleiflex!”
