Standing man and walking man

These sculptures are by Sean Henry and stand beside the Paddington canal basin, close to the railway station. They were installed in 2004 and are cast in bronze, with oil paint finish. They are slightly larger than life-size.

I came across them on a winter afternoon’s walk, which meant that the statues were in flat shadow. I took two crops from the original photograph, each of which has a different sense of space and relationship between the two figures. Both images have otherwise been processed in the same way.
