Four Ideas for a New Town #4
1988, 30x36 cm

This picture could as easily have been named as a 'Meeting The Dead', since a bunch of these were named or renamed together at one point, and it's from that sequence of 'walking corpses', this one showing the various wounds of (I suppose) medieval war.

The boy on the right is froma sequence of frames over a few seconds, and here he's just seen the Landrover and darting away. It's St. Paul's in London in the background, and I enjoyed the reflection in the wet road which disappears behind the figure. I had a girlfriend living at King's Cross at the time, who told me that there are two or three rivers covered over and running under the area, and that idea was running around my head.
