feathers.jpg

This was taken at Manchester's Mardi Gras parade - a fabulous annual event. I had no idea who the guy was, but that enigmatic look along with the feathers and body paint just chimed. I had the picture printed and framed for an exhibition the following year - everybody liked it, but nobody bought it and it stayed on my studio wall. But - update!!! --- seven years later, his friend saw the picture - I took it off the wall and gave it to him the picture to pass, with thanks :-)
