Riverside School, Thamesmead, England. Portrait #1 1977

This photograph was taken during a cover lesson. A cover lesson is where a teacher is asked to look after a class when another teacher is ill or away from duties. If you are lucky there would be work available for them during this period. More often than not you would arrive at the class unprepared, without any teaching materials. The expectation was that you kept some sort of order for an hour or so. I found that I could keep their interest by taking their picture!
