CCP Salon 2014

Words and photos - J Forsyth

CCP opened this years Salon on one of the hotter afternoons in the build up to summer.  Prized with the job of shooting the event, I regretted wearing all black eerrrrthang.  The gallery flooded with eager eyeballs from the minute it opened, the speeches were almost unbearable (because of the heat not the content) lines formed to view each wall and I realised that a camera doesn't make a good fan.

A bunch of people won stuff, everyone else drank booze, the water girls were run off their feet and I pondered the job of photographing photographers and photographs in a photography gallery.
