Notes on this work

Back to main work

The third print is a curious record of the long drought which stretched through the whole summer of 1976. Two types of matchbox, each originating from behind the iron curtain, show in progressive stages the bleaching of the beautiful purple and deep blue papers used in the making of the trays of the boxes. Usually these thrown away items are dissipated by the rain: however, in that year they stayed exposed on the streets of Peckham.
