Artist's Description

Having just finished watching BBC4’s superb ‘The Genius of Photography’ over 6 consecutive evenings I find myself noticing possibilities I would not normally see or consider.

The sombre, mysterious & distant gaze of this shop window dummy had intrigued me for a couple of days, so last night – in the cold, dark, wind & rain – I went to photograph it… and got plenty of funny looks from the local self appointed gentry & web-fingered fungos alike.

I left this shot intentionally bright & light blasted, as I saw it under the heat of the shop window spot lamps. That lighting seemed to work well with the look of resignation on this dummy’s face – for me it represents the idea that personal difficulties are often like a blinding inescapable glare that marks you out either for unwanted attention, or the avoidance of those around you…
