Clearing out some drawers before Christmas led to the rediscovery of this print of Sirrka-Liisa Konttinen’s Girl on a Spacehopper, which I won in a Side Gallery competition (possibly on Facebook) a few years ago, put to one side then obviously forgot about. I’m really pleased with the framing job; it was worth paying the extra for non-reflective glass and I might have some of my other framed prints re-done in the same way.

This photo was taken as part of Konttinen’s Byker work (coincidentally on display in the Tate Modern at the moment), and there’s a nice story in the latest TateEtc magazine about the photographer finally meeting the girl in the photo recently after many years. Also, an aside in that story suggests that Konttinen is working on digitising her work for a forthcoming book, which has to be good news.
