57 Apollo House
Taken at The Old Vinyl Factory in Hayes. Apollo House was where vinyl LPs were pressed, everyone from Frank Sinatra to The Beatles to The Rolling Stones. My research indicates that Anarchy in the UK by The Sex Pistols was the last vinyl to be pressed there. This series was captured on film using a plastic toy camera, then printed and toned in the darkroom. Entirely analog in tribute to the music made at The Old Vinyl Factory.
