One Nation Under CCTV, London

April 2009:


I continue on my quest to learn black and white film development with an old film I took out of a camera just before loaning it to a friend. I'd forgotten it was still in there until then.

This is Banksy's astonishing feat of guerilla art, just off Oxford Street in London. Taken quite a while ago - probably sometime last year. Shot with an Olympus Mju-II on Delta 400, and developed in Ilfotec at 1:29 for about nine and a half minutes at 20ºC (ish). The detail in this shot is awesome, helped by the fine grain of the film and the incredibly sharp lens in the Mju-II.


The wall was painted over last month.
