SculptureAmong Rod Burkey's albums
I took this back in 1985. The sculptor was working away in wood creating a most striking if grumpy male figure. I did see more of his work back then, but non since, which is a shame. TRI-X film, 50mm f1.4 lens, Nikon FE.
All Together Now, St Lukes Liverpool.
Based on the football match which was played by the soldiers against the wishes of the generals. Common sense amid the madness. I hope that this actually took place and can almost hear the sound of "Silent Night" / "Stille Nacht" coming across "no man's land". I found looking at this work inside St Luke's Church, the so called "Bombed Out Church" very moving.
All Together Now. British Soldier detail, Saint George's Hall, Liverpool.
Taken with no flash in the semi darkness of the Hall. 1/20th second at F8. ISO 12,800.
All Together Now, (hands detail) St Lukes Liverpool.
The hands are almost together, which allows the viewer to put a hand between, joining the two figures together.
Detail of the statue of the Beatles unveiled at Liverpool's Pier Head on 4th December 2015. It's the work of sculptor Andrew Edwards. I felt a mono conversion suited this shot, and Paul's likeness is strong, as is the harsh winter light.
