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.

      For sure. I figured I couldn't call myself a photographer unless I could do it.

      Just uploaded a couple of shots from my new rangefinder on Delta 400 pushed two stops; I love this film.

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Best Graffiti Photographs, and we'd love to have this added to the group!
