Faces Of The Fair by Nikki Fox
This portrait series was shot by Daily News-Record photographer Nikki Fox on Friday evening at the Rockingham County Fair. She used a 1960s Rolleicord camera that takes medium-format film. Please note that it was the photographer’s choice to use minimal computer correction on the original images. “I enjoy the nostalgic feeling of the film . . . it’s a dying art,” Fox said.
