August 19 1993 : Bjork at The Forum, apparently her first gig at that particular venue, and, a difficult one to shoot.
Even though I was fairly early the fans were packed in close at the front. There was no photographers pit, no stage access so I grabbed what I could for a Melody Maker review during glimpses between the crowd.
A colour frame was used in the paper back in '93 and it was only recently that I actually looked at the black & white negs. I really like this frame which has sat as a latent image in the files for the last 20 years and it would still be hidden if someone hadn't requested seeing some Bjork pics from the archive.
I often wonder about our digital images, we generally delete what doesn't look right. These images of Bjork have survived due to the fact that under or over-exposed negs,and, blurred images too, are not cut from the strips of film. They sit there, filed away, hidden from light and awaiting discovery....
