About the Work

The subtitle for this piece was 'Portrait of the Artist's Daughter'. It was photographed in the Mummy Room of the British Museum from five different positions. The Mummy Room contains the museum's most popular exhibits. This extraordinary collection of bodies from an ancient empire, presented here by a later empire, is the world's most comprehensive outside Egypt. It was mostly acquired during Great Britain's Victorian heyday. The child at the centre of the work is my daughter Pinny, dressed as the principal character in Lewis Carroll's timeless story.

″I still use the same approach to my work: I get an idea, think of the title and then make the work. So not much has changed since 1964″
