Sheridan bought this Nikon F1 at a second hand camera shop in Romford in the late 70s. At an early age he’d borrowed his dad’s camera and processed the film himself. He was looking at Cartier-Bresson and later work by his dad’s friends. They were working in the 1960s newly heroic profession, that of fashion photography. The F1 was indestructable and manual. Sheridan was not a natural, he was quick to accept this. Today he is still taking photographs, still ‘as a happy amateur’.
