Artist's description:

This serendipitous image was made in 1976. Whilst shooting an advert which involved the 'Something Original' homemade graffiti near to South London's famous Nunhead Cemetery this bunch of lads turned up and asked "can we be in the picture mister?" The advert is long forgotten but this shot has always been a favourite in my portfolio and now, 42 years later, it is available as a Limited Edition print.

Incidentally, the wall was on the end of a terrace of houses which were demolished the very next day. In 2014 the images was spotted on FlickR by one of the lads who got in touch with me and has since located at least one of his old pals from the photograph.

(Shot on grainy Tri-X with a Hasselblad 500c with 80mm lens - image cropped to 3:2)

All my Limited Editions use 'C-type' matt Fujifilm 'Crystal Archive' photographic paper processed using traditional silver-based chemistry by the UK’s leading professional fine art lab in London. Each print has a 10 mm white border all round.

A Certificate of Authenticity bearing the title, edition number, digital signature and a uniquely numbered security hologram accompanies each print along with a duplicate hologram for fixing to the back of the print after framing.

Also note that my equipment is calibrated from camera right through to the print process so unless you are using a fully calibrated monitor the colors of your Limited Edition are very likely to be slightly different than it appears on your own screen.

Shipping price includes all packaging costs.
