“My first year covering the festival for the national papers was 1997” – Tim Cuff

“My first year covering the festival for the national papers was 1997 – a good and wet one. I remember such an exciting buzz I didn’t eat a thing all day, just ran on adrenaline.

At the end of an exhausting day traipsing around I had a bag of exposed film and was heading for the exit to get back to our office in Exeter to process and go through the negatives. Back then we weren’t shooting digital and still got our hands dirty with chemicals.

I popped this picture off as I walked past these two dirty dudes but didn’t know it was a good shot until 2 hours later. It was on the front of the Guardian the next day and still one of my fave pix. I’d love the guys in the picture to see it again and wish I’d grabbed their names.

I went to Glastonbury for many years and always found something different happening.”
