In my photographic career I have
made 3 Lion photographs.
One quality they
have in common is that none of the Lions
are real, that’s not deliberate on my part
The top Lion is a new arrival
in New Plymouth, up
against a mural and outside a
hotel that opened 2 weeks
ago, a hotel called King & Queen,
The middle Lion is glass
and living on a window ledge,
it’s back facing west towards
the sunset, probably ten
The earliest of these photos, the bottom one,
is the Lion head against a brick wall.
I had gone for a walk from my
Copenhagen hotel 15 years ago
and come across some land with
a storage collection of statues like this.
