Blustons: Meeting Michael Albert as the last Mannequins were being sold

BlustonsLeica02

Meeting Michael Albert on one of the very last days he was in Blustons, his family run Ladies Outfitters on Kentish Town Road, felt like a real honour... and the traces of the people who had passed through the shop, buying clothing from mundane (jumpers, thermal underwear) to marvellous (wedding gowns) were quite tangible, lingering on the empty shelves and behind the half drawn curtain of the dressing room.

I took many photographs - and wanted to share these alongside the more formal Camden Encounter writeup.
