About the Work
“I first came across this image fairly recently while looking through early issues of PhotoForum Magazine. Even reproduced at a small scale in the magazine it was clearly an interesting image with a keen composition and good use of high contrast lighting.” – Solomon Mortimer, ‘My Choice’ November 2021
