Public art, fame and photography

I was recently approached by the BBC with a request to use one or more of my photographs for an website piece on public art. I was happy to agree with that, and I’ve just seen that the piece has gone live, complete with my image of the late, not all that lamented “Lego Men” sculpture that I posted back in 2007 – this photo here, in fact:

Actually, that’s a double dose of fame, because my shadow is in the photo, so I’m actually on the BBC website, so there, sort of.

Here’s the article, about pieces of public art that have fallen out of favour, or were never loved at all:
