Times Square Go-Go Club 1985

I shot a few rolls of Ektachrome and some of the older rolls have faded badly. Maybe the sign was so vivid that the emulsion still held enough of the original colors to look decent thirty years later…

“Sex, Drugs & Rock N Roll” 1985

sex-drugs-times-squareIn 1973 I stopped taking photographs for reasons which I will not explain, but in December of 1984  I bought an AE-1 Canon and a 50mm lens and started to photograph New York, most often while I was driving my yellow cab. This image was pushed heavily (Probably 3200) since I figured that was the way to go, and to be honest, I never became very good at developing film. Printing was different, but I guess my fear to develop film by inspection with a green safelight, left me guessing, and more often than not, the results were just passable…
