  1. Thanks Roy. The photograph by Barbro looks almost like a Japanese illustration I have seen.
    The Horse in the Snow picture is actually taken from a digital film recording of some old BBC footage from the 1960’s. I had been collecting images from videos on You Tube of animals that were part of the collective imagery of the countryside. There are lots of clips of peoples visits to the New Forest (where I grew up); You Tube and flickr have taken over from peoples old ‘snaps’, where people would carefully hand around colour prints from their holidays, they now share them online. After a while if you look through enough peoples images/recordings of the same place you see they pretty much make the same pictures. This is something that is evident in Historic sites such as the Tower of London.

    Alex Drago has done some very interesting work about the collective online imagery by visitors to the historic sites of the Holocaust here: http://www.alexdrago.co.uk/page5.htm

    Also there is an interesting essay about the move from printed snaps to online albums here:
