Strange Monuments 5

(Click to enlarge) I snapped this Antony Gormley figure on Crosby beach in 2007. Perhaps I should check in a dictionary but the word evoked for me by Gormley's figures is "elegiac". When asked why so much of his work was based upon life casts taken from his own body the artist is said to have remarked "It is what I am given". Well, you can't argue with that.
