Somewhat surreal…

A relic of future archaeology?

A year or so ago I rescued this shop-window dummy from the recycling shop that is an adjunct of our city dump. Far too handsome to become landfill, mounted on an old tree stump, he has been doing sterling service as a rather metrosexual, garden sculpture-cum-scarecrow. For fairly obvious reasons we have christened him Vincent de Milo.

For some months, I’ve been thinking of photographing him in various locations. Yesterday, he had his first outing to the beach where, inspired by the remnants of the Statue of Liberty sticking out of the sand in the final scene of Planet of The Apes, I visualised him in the role of some future archaeological find. What next for Vincent? Watch this space…

Back from the beach: Vincent in his more prosaic role as garden sentinel.
