Anti National Front rally, London, 1978

Thirty years ago, a group of musicians and political activists came together to form Rock Against Racism. Elvis Costello played at the 100 000 strong London rally, it was an event I will never forget. The English sure know how to do eccentric.

Unfortunately the B&W  negatives from this year long trip were overexposed or overdeveloped, leaving dense, grainy TRI-X negatives. Around seven years ago I used my Nikon 990 to slide scan the negatives. These images are the originally process shots given another treatment using Photoshop CS5.
