Hurrying by foot from St Pancras to Euston Station two weeks ago I saw this and shot instinctively.
This was taken on the road that separates St Pancras from the British Library. These two men – waiters I assume – were taking a break, ‘chilling out’ with their phones. The contrast between them and the man in the poster seemingly at screaming pitch struck me as powerful.
Curious to know more, while writing this, I thought I would see what’s on at the British Library. It turns out that this poster is advertising ‘Terror and wonder: The Gothic Imagination‘ and the image itself is titled ‘Terror and Wonder’ by Dave McKean. click the link to see the full poster (which has been flipped horizontally for display as seen in my image) and learn more about this exhibition.
