This image reminds me of something you would look at under a microscope such as cells or organisms. It is such a simple image yet it seems to hold a lot of detail. I think this topic could be a great starting point for a project. This image could create such a great abstract pattern. The monochrome colours give it a very modern feel but it still maintains its natural element.
Little is known of Horace Warner and nothing is known of his relationship to the nippers. Only 30 of these pictures survive, out of 240 he took in 1912 of the Spitalfields Nippers, East End London. They originally accompanied the annual reports of the charitable Bedford Institute, Quaker St, Spitalfields as illustrations of poverty, "but that is not the sum total of these beguiling photographs...spirited images of something more subtle and compelling, the elusive drama of childhood itself."
