Daniel Postgate, Writer and Illustrator 2006


I took this image of Daniel in 2006 as part of a project on artists and their working spaces. The interior of his shed was very small and I liked the idea of taking the picture at night so I lit the outside with tungsten lights and shot the photograph using a Linhoff 5×4 film camera that had belonged to my Father. Daniel is in the news at the moment because he is writing a new series of ‘The Clangers’ which is due for release early next year. It will undoubtedly be a great success here and in the States.
