How to Photograph: Maurice Broomfield again
picture: Maurice Broomfield
All this How-not-to-photograph cynicism is bringing me down, not least because I'm talking about myself all the time with the snide comments. And I haven't even got onto pictures of children yet. But I'm on a run with it and can't really get off the trolley quite yet.
So as a respite from the sarcasm, I'll return to a favourite picture of mine, by the marvellous Maurice Broomfield (the maker of epic industrial imagery and Nick Broomfield's father - you can hear Father and son talk about their relationship here).
Broomfield has a collection of his photographs coming out this weekend called Maurice Broomfield: Photographs. You can buy it here. And you can buy a print of the picture featured above for only £30 here. Bargain, but I'd like a big one. Size matters in this case.
