Protocol Teacher’s Agency – 23 April 2002


23 April 2002, Leicester, UK

While working in the UK I applied to and worked for two different teaching agencies. These duller than dull photos were taken for an identity card (see below) for one of the agencies, Protocol Teachers.

This group of photos comes from my series Photobooth 41 Year Project. You can see all the posts that document the series by clicking here. I am still adding to this project using mostly digital booths to create the images. The project is now close to entering its 44th year. Could it be the world’s longest photobooth project?

    • Do I? Thanks 😊🎄. I owe you an email. Thank you for those photos. They are awesome!


  2. Not that it means anything, but I was born just outside Leicester in Syston and spent the first twenty years of my life there. But that was way back in the 20th century. Great photos for what amounts to a valuable lesson in social history.

    • Thanks Bryan. Leicester was a strange place. It felt like when the heart of the city was destroyed in WW2 it destroyed the heart of its people. They don’t seem to have recovered. It is the only place I have been in the UK where they welcomed you with “why the hell would you want to live here?”, but generally in more colourful language than that!


      • That made me smile. I once wrote that living in Leicester was mainly due to a lack of imagination. The people who lived in Leicester couldn’t imagine living anywhere else, whereas the people who moved away couldn’t imagine moving back.

  3. Ohh. Why you stop it? Why not giving it a break instead?! Have you ever thought before, during all this years to stop it? Maybe you found always a reason to continue. 🙂

    • Hi Marcus, I stopped teaching because my health was beginning to fail me and I was not coping with that. I have a degenerative genetic condition called Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. I am unable to work due to the symptoms of the condition. 😕
