Henry Moore’s Knife Edge returns to Greenwich Park.
One of my clients The Royal Parks asked me to photograph the return to Greenwich Park of Henry Moore’s 1976 sculpture ‘Large Standing Figure: Knife Edge'. The sculpture has returned to the plinth it stood on from 1979 until 2007, is on loan for two years and will be in place for the 2012 Olympics. Excitingly for me, and something the client forgot to mention before the shoot, the opening was attended by Olympic legend and current world record triple jumper Jonathan Edwards. Sadly I didn't get a chance to chat to him as he was too busy, but it is interesting to see the diverse places the images crop up!
