A little record of one of Guy Bourdin’s super8s on show @ Somerset House, London. Incidentally, it was shot ‘straight8 style’ (i.e. editing on the trigger), during his seminal road trip of Britain in 1979: Britain by Cadillac.
This time around, ACTUAL super8s were twice removed - the piece was projected digitally (and to be honest in an almost insufferable telecine’d version…) and shot in Nov2014 using an ancient iPhone (and no flash photography!).
Long live celluloid indeed!!
