After the party by awefaul

Currently unavailable for purchase

Removing one of the huge posters from a temporary structure at the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town, built for the soccer World Cup that ended a week ago. (The leftover merchandise are now for sale and the organisers will probably try to give away vuvuzelas free. Like in a “Buy one get 10 FREE!” campaign)

Featured in The Magnum Prospects , 26/07/10

Another large poster that was on the other side:

I also made another picture with the same guy:

Digital photography is doing for photography what the piano did for keyboard music. You can still play music composed for the harpsichord on the piano but not the other way around.

    great composition for a terrific image here, awefaul … love the left hand figures on the poster kind of looking at the guy peeling them off :))

  • Thanks. The big question was how much peeling to let him do. I took several and plan to use him peeling colour from something like a sunset or whatever.
