Photographer's Note


This picture was one of those quick reaction images where my camera wasn’t even in my hand when I first saw the possibilities – I took it around 1985-6 on a trip to Chesterfield in Derbyshire – I had just crossed to an island in the middle of the road when this bus pulled up in front – I looked up and saw this child’s arm being stalked by this Prince of Darkness and just managed to get this one shot before the bus moved off. Taken on FP4.

I’ve always liked this image and have used it a couple of times in publications and as an illustration to teaching work – it still grabs me as much as the moment it suddenly appeared in front of me! It makes a really nice print and I’ve just always liked it a lot for some reason! I just sit staring at it fascinated! I guess I'm mildly obsessed by it. A bit of a ghoulsome personal favourite but hey……
