"Clever" is a word that come to mind when I see this portrait, Russell...perhaps not a perfect description, but the one that first occurred to me.
russell higgs: That cardboard packaging originally belonged to my aunt.

I first used it 26 nov 2006....

and it featured on my very first T-shirt sale....

One of the things that appeals to me about that packaging is that it is really really old. Probably 40 or 50 years or more (it's a similar age to me). I like the idea of something so ephemeral and inconsequential from the past surviving into the digital age and becoming re-contextualised (and globalised) in a way it would have never imagined (if cardboard boxes have imaginations, that is).

Yes, I remember the box Russell. You are a master conservator and a one man re-cycling machine. I'm glad that a number of your props pop up from time to time, especially this one because of it's vintage status and more importantly, I wear it to! lol

all the best Russell. mal
russell higgs: LOL. I've only just noticed BeakerSt's comment on your Xmas Day tribute...

"Can't wait to see Russell's long exposure seascape!"
