The Unknown: Kilburn, London

I met this man in a shop, so i waited until he will come out of it. Then i asked him for a portrait, sadly, he said no, but after 5 minutes walking he found me in next shop and said sorry and suggested to pose for it. He said his English was bad so he didn't understand it but he remembered that I was pointing to camera so he understood it just afterwards.


His name is Hameed and he's from Iraq. He came here 11 years ago and doesn't like this city, but situation dictates it now. He was quite sad but very attentive. He spelled his name to make it perfect and to be sure about it he was imitating writing his name on my hand.


Camera: Kiev 80 with Volna-3 80mm f/2.8.

Film: Fomapan 200.

Self-developed: Ilfosol 3 developer 1:14 (20℃ for 6 minutes).
