The Specials, Rotterdam concert 1979

Specials at New Pop Rotterdam

The Specials at New Pop Rotterdam, 9 September 1979

This 9 September 1979 photo shows British band the Specials, playing ska at the Rotterdam, the Netherlands New Pop Festival 1979 in the Zuiderpark.

I took photos there with my Kodak Pocket Instamatic, the cheapest, smallest and simplest camera available. In 2005, photo shops stopped developing and printing Instamatic films. That meant the end of photography forever for me and others for whom expensive cameras for which you needed a Sc.D degree were not an option.

You could only make 12 photos with an Instamatic film. So, I had to be careful not to waste film.

I photographed the Inner Circle reggae band.

I made photos of the Specials, as also this one shows.

And I saw and heard the Cure at that festival too. About that, later.
