This image is all about getting older; throughout our lives we reach milestones that mark our ageing. It could be a 50th birthday, a reunion, the day we need to wear glasses....or something as simple as finally being too tall for the funfair.
I'm not good about ageing, and it's often one of my universal photographic themes. In this image I deliberately saturated the colours to be those of youth: over there, just to far away to reach out and touch....
Sorry you are too Tall, Durban, 2006
