The Locksmith's Stall
Screen Print on Somerset paper.
The image was inspired by a trip I took to India a few years ago - this was in the local market in Bikaner. I LOVED this stall, which was really just a doorway to an incredibly messy room... the man has a number of keys and padlocks, and if you had a key without a lock, he would customise one of his to fit your key and the same if you had a lock but were missing the key! It was a wonderful example of the constant reuse and recycling of things in India and I was so impressed by the ingenuity involved.
