Had this idea (after a few drinks before Xmas) and wanted to open it out.
The Herd book is out very shortly, the cover image (see below) features those “Cellotaphs” – the informal floral shrines to the victims of road accidents that have started to appear all over the UK (although i’ve seen some wild ones in Latin countries and India and Thailand, I’m interested in the way they have spread recently).
I wanted to do something more interesting than the usual DM nonsense (you know how I love DM…)
So here’s my thought:
I’m going to curate an online exhibition of photographs (and other digital images) of these cellotaphs. And maybe an offline one, too? With a cash prize for the best? Dunno.
The one above of the Marc Bolan shrine in Barnes is the first entry (Tom Mattey did it for my book).
Kieron, Adrian and few others already agreed to have a go. Who else wants some?
