Scanning old negs
7

I've been scanning some old negatives from the Alone in a Crowd series. Most of what I've scanned has never been printed, including the images in this post.

Starting in the mid-80s, my job took me to Europe several times a year and I often spent my weekends doing street photography. One rainy Sunday, I wandered into the train station in Zug, Switzerland. I wasn’t properly equipped for the low light levels, but I spent the afternoon there, bracing my folding Plaubel Makina against posts during the required quarter- to fifteenth-second exposures. When I developed the film, I found two images I liked. I was especially smitten with the motion blur in many of the images.

I decided to pursue this new photographic thread. Armed with more appropriate equipment, a Hasselblad 501c and a 40 mm lens, I tacked a week in England and a few days in France onto the end of a business trip, and exposed about 80 rolls of TX trying to see where this could go.
