Artist's description:

'Snap' is a box assemblage measuring 363 mm x 215 mm x 40 mm deep. Using original photographs and postcards from 1916 from exactly one hundred years ago, an original vintage camera advertisement from that period, a vintage drawing pin tin and a 1916 dictionary page relating to photography along with a number of vintage wooden boxes. The piece of solid Victorian mahogany used for the 'SNAP' sign was recycled from an 1890 wood and brass camera.

The girls who star in this piece are sadly long gone but I like to think that by including them in this work they are not forgotten. I am sure they never thought that in a hundred years time their image would be gracing the wall of an art lover somewhere in the world maybe thousands of miles from their native England!

This artwork will be sent by Special Delivery overnight to the UK and by International Tracked and Signed-for to all other shipping destinations. (Tracked only to Australia).

Materials used:

1916 photographs and postcards, ephemera, vintage drawing pin tin, vintage wooden box, 1916 Dictionary page etc
