Vantage points and keepers

Making a book for my SEED exhibition collection. The editor sends an email …

I'm not so keen on the Gareth Liddiard photo Zo. You can barely see him!

That's the point.
It was that packed Liddiard sat on a bench.
It was his first solo show at The Tote. 
People spilled into the street and were going to great lengths in order to get a better vantage point.
It was insane. 
I've never seen The Tote Front Bar so crowded!
I wanted to show the immensity of it all … the room mesmerised by his performance.
It's an important moment. 

I smile, and nod … The photograph stays.
