Eamonn McCabe tells the fascinating story behind this powerful photograph.

Produced as supplementary audio visual content for Whistledown’s Radio 4 series The Spoken Image in which photographer Eamonn McCabe, curates a photo exhibition on the radio, featuring images that have moved and inspired him during his 50 years in the business. Together, the images represent the power photography has to connect us to our past and our humanity – our feats and failures, our memories, emotions, and our humour.

With such beautiful choices from Eamonn, visual content was a natural complimentary fit where the audience could delight in examining the details of their composition. It was featured on Radio 4’s website and across their social media feeds.
