Public / Private
A double theme this time round, and it’s my time to set and host. Click on the images to see the full size versions.
When Richard suggested Public/ Private as a theme, I immediately thought of those rubbish schemes the government runs when they want to wash their hands of some service they are supposed to be running – schools, utilities etc. But I just couldn’t find anything to photograph to illustrate just what I felt, so I plumped for rather direct interpretations of the theme, I’m afraid. On the upside, both photographs are named after tracks on Siouxsie and the Banshees’ albumPeepshow (1988), which is ace!
This proved one of those collaborations where my initial ideas went out of the window when a new one came along. It was a seedling of an idea that built and, while it is probably the most intimate of my images to date, I’m pleased, if not entirely comfortable, with the results.
