For six weeks during the summer of 1971 I worked as a freelance photographer at Barratt's Photo Press. Maurice Hibberd was Pictures Editor. I have salvaged four of my photographs from that time, two human interest stories and two 'celeb shoots'. Photographs are copyright Barratt's Photo Press and reproduced here[*] for their historical interest.
