  1. Yes, I can see the likeness. It is interesting the effect of a freeze frame on some very busy seaside action. I would love to see the Crosby Beach installation. I once saw Gormley’s figures displayed in, on, and around the South Bank in London. The life-sized metal casts of his own body in such anomalous settings were amazing and rather spooky.


  2. That’s funny, John. I see what you mean. It is strange because the photograph is entirely unaltered – just as it happened – and everyone was having a really lovely time jumping up and down in the water, using body boards, playing ball, and it was a noisy happy scene in strong sunlight. The camera captured it all differently, and the backlighting made everything seem so dramatic.
