1992, 46 x 30 cm
These girls were photographed on a Twelfth of July in
'81 I think in York St. in Belfast.
It was difficult to use both the spaceman and the space-station,
which were missing fragments cropped off in the original page, but it
helped to make a play of myself being sent spinning by the girl flailing
her bag. I see now it's amusingly as if non-gravity came down to Earth
around me. In the background is a landscape of Smolensk, from a Gagarin
biography, with its original caption which says something like: "..it's
inhabitants were to find that its ramparts were no better a defence than
the stout hearts of its defenders.."
