Commissioned for the rock band ‘Yes’ to illustrate a song called ‘Does it really happen’ for their tour brochure. The band didn’t like this version saying ‘We don’t have guns’. I then removed the carpet and foot adding the footprints in the sand walking away as in ‘Does it really happen 2 which was accepted.
‘Photography is a process of self–examination. By recording the light we perceive, we record our own sensibilities. Using photographic processes, we edit, crop, and choose the reality which pleases our purpose – whether it be a family snap, a report on some global disaster, a human atrocity such as war, torture or genocide, or just a humble piece of photographic art trying to express an emotion. The question of success is a question of resonance or dissonance – either could be the desired effect.’ (from Hags book ‘How Things Are’)
