‘The Thirty Five Millimetre Sunset’

‘The Thirty-Five Millimetre Sunset’ (420 x 286) – Limited edition of 10

Another in my ‘Tiny People’ Series. This time, a tiny executive from Kodak climbs atop a giant film canister to reflect on past glories and witness the sun setting on the last days of 35mm film. (Trivia: the actual piece of film used here came from a news shot for the Evening Standard in London of a farmhouse fire by the M4 in 1976).

About Colin Cadle

I trained as a pilot at the Royal Air Force College Cranwell flying jets and qualified as a captain on Wessex search and rescue helicopters in the Gulf. However, my professional future was destined to be firmly back on the ground... In 1976 a chance introduction to Julie Andrews' husband film producer Blake Edwards really kicked off my interest in photography after he invited me onto the set of the Peter Sellers' now classic film 'The Pink Panther Strikes Again' at Shepperton Studios. Stills photographer David Farrell further fired my enthusiasm when, during a break in filming, I was offered a short photo shoot with leading fashion model and 'Bond girl' actress Maud Adams. From that moment on art and photography have always played a major part in my life. I now live in the beautiful southwest corner of England with​ my designer and photo-stylist wife Jan. Following a serious illness in 2016 we were forced to leave commercial photography behind us but this now allows me to concentrate solely on creating art from my studio in Devon
