Marina Van Rooy, Liverpool, 1990.

Posted by
Mark McNulty (Liverpool, United Kingdom) on 11 March 2009 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

This is from the first set of photographs I did with Liverpool singer Marina Van Rooy who I went on to work with quite a bit over the following years. This was also one of my early attempts at cross processing by taking transparency film and processing it as negative. The technique was pioneered, though I don't know who tried it first (?), by Nick Knight who was my favourite photographer at the time. I even applied be one of Nick Knight's assistants at the time and got a very nice letter, with NK embossed on it, saying that I'd been 'put on file'. The photograph was taken in the waiting room of the old Isle Of Man ferry terminal which also featured a few years ago as the location for the Paul McGann portrait.

If you are interested in purchasing any of these images then please email me whether it regards commercial licensing or personal prints. I also have an online shop which is part of my main portfolio site at www.mcnulty.co.uk

nice portrait - funny to see the digital cross-process effect so heavily used on photoblogs and websites these days. Similar to synths and other such things, digital seeking to emulate analogue processes - cool to see one of your early attempts at the real thing.
