Not dark yet

An article was recently forwarded to those of us interested in archiving visual material (http://tinyurl.com/yeambp9). It notes that an undeveloped roll of Ilford HP5 b&w film of a Bob Dylan concert taken 31 years ago has just been unearthed. Photographer Mark Estabrook checked with Ilford on how best to develop it and the outcome apparently is perfect– the 37-year-old Bob looks good. Estabrook says it’s a testament to the longevity of silver halide photography and he plans to bring out a new book soon. The film of Dylan was kept in a tin along with shots of the band Little Feat. (And Little Feat still looks good too: catch up with them at: http://www.littlefeat.net/)
