A late addition to the Peoplescape prints.
It got shortlisted for the Summer Exhibition in 2014 but didn't get past the post.
I haven't really thought about it until now. 
It's a different way of doing these people-as-location images and this is what I said about it at the time:
"It's image of Semley village fete. All my Dorset mates are in there as well as a bloke in red trousers; Leo's there, Charlie from the Beckford, Sara and Juliet are in place; loads of dogs, and even though they weren't around; I put my daughters with their incredibly timid and emotional Irish Wolfhound, Pixie. Aww.


I loved doing it, and though my technique is necessarily rather deadpan (it's just traced on Photoshop), the colours are fun; and importantly it's an attempt to get away from the more painterly, conservative stuff you expect to see that deals with life in the country.
If you look closely you'll see Bob Dylan looking pretty in his Pierre Cardin suit and boots. He's listening to the band play Dirty Old Town, and probably thinking he should get back to his folk roots.
Hence the title."
