Cambridge 1982-91

I moved out of London to Cambridge. It was time to have babies. Alice was born in1982 and would accompany me in the pram so I could continue with my photography projects. Cambridge was beautiful and a complete antidote to London.  I was given permission by the colleges to photograph the exterior of the buildings and I started to photograph Cambridge Colleges and gardens. I am eight months pregnant with my son Harry in the bottom picture and soon the three of us would trundle through the colleges, photographing each season. Alice loved to press the shutter release and believe she had taken the shots. The pictures became a library resource for  local graphic design and advertising agencies. I also published a number of images as large posters. I sold thousands of the posters to tourists during my children's early years.
