A perfectly piscine picture

IN TOMMY’S WORDS: In the ’80s. Not sure why I snapped this, but it took a while to do using many rolls of TRI-X. The first girl I used couldn’t handle the fish tickling her nose. Another kept sneezing, and another found it difficult to breathe. But the fourth girl took to it like a fish to water. Always wished I had shot it in colour. One of my favourites.

From the BLACK & WHITE FILES of Australian photographer TOMMY CAMPION, take a look at what can be done when a snapper gets a great idea and carries it out. Taken in the 1980s, it is a reminder of what could be achieved by creativity – and persistence – in the days before photoshop! This fabulous photograph is just as it was taken.  What a brave model she was!

      You will have to find a model with similar amazing eyes. I imagine them as bright blue or green. And that gold fish…yes, Tommy, do it again in colour!
