This is Alf.
I made him last year, he is an ex veteran living on the streets of Soho, made up of mesh, mod-rock, fabric and other old bits and bobs, his feet are wrapped in carrier bags to hold in the warmth. His dog is called Ratbag and consists of leather, brown paper and hessian amongst other things. I photographed the pair in an alley way, the difference in his scale to his surroundings is symbolic of how he is made to feel on a day to day basis, small and inadequate, and just to add insult to injury I forgot about him, I stumbled across him again when sorting through my hard drive. Poor Alf.
