My eldest child and I took a jaunt back across the pond last year. I shot, with no exaggeration, more than 500 photographs, and while some of those images have made it to my website and onto the walls of collectors, the other hundreds of unseen images started calling to me a year after we returned from our trip.
(ok, not literally calling – no need to fit me for a straight jacket just yet)
The flags, the taxis, the phone booths, Big Ben…so many different scenes flickered past my eyes as I scanned my photographs for something new…and then, this piece popped into my head: the most charming, beautiful, quintessential pieces of modern British culture combined with classic children’s poems. Toss in a little oxidized copper I’d photographed year ago, and you have my homage to the country I consider my second home.
