I used to set my students an assignment around Anzac Day. This time I decided to take on the challenge myself. I tried to convey the “feel” of this event by restricting the camera I would use to a toy camera, using only one roll of film and photographing only from the car.
All images were taken with a $1.50 toy camera on Ilford FP4 120 film , printed on Argenta paper and Selenium toned.
This and similar images around the theme of the consequences of the Chernobyl disaster were made two years after the incident, when it began to emerge how many thousands would suffer for years. Not just people either, all flora and fauna in the area was affected by mutations and degenerative diseases.
