It’s cricket season again, and summer and the games stretch out in front of you. You’re off to the G with 50,000 other spectators, or perhaps only wandering past the local oval where today’s C-grade match is underway. Whichever game you’re watching there’s the smell the fresh-cut grass, the thwack of willow on leather. Suddenly, a shout and a chorus of hands up goes up, followed by the finger of the umpire.
It might be 1900; it might be the 1940s; it might be your childhood; it might be now. This is the essence of cricket.
Artist’s Comments: “This print is loosely based on a 1948 photograph of Bill Johnston successfully appealing for lbw . What I love about this photograph is that it’s a moment of decisive action, yet it feels completely relaxed at the same time. It’s like both sides of test match cricket are present at once – the high drama and the long stillnesses that come in between those moments. It's everything that means cricket to me all in a single image" Naomi Le Get More about Naomi
