1. In what area is critique to be sought?
Completely experimental, I want to know what is the response to an image like this.

2. What one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
It was a direct response to the series by a young british artist, Gillian Carnegie, and her paintings of 'prince' I was completely captivated by the Turner nominee's paintings for banal scenes, and wanted to use the medium of photography to capture what I saw immediately after. It is titled the same, with a question mark at the end, turning and completely changing the meaning. rather simplistic, I know, but like i say, it remains experimental .

3. Under what circumstance is the picture taken?
It was a response, and the light, shadow and tones were stunning, and I wanted as closely as possible to recreate the simple yet complex scene.

4. What the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture.
I find it sombre, muted, yet with an air of anticipation, the lights seem to want to turn up to reveal something yet the static state of the image tries otherwise.

I am struck by this stark, cold and uninviting image.

What's hiding behind the shadows, behind the panel, under the stairs?
Where does the stair lead to, what will i encounter?

The scene is so still. There is no where for me to go or want to go.

This image is so different from the painter's Prince , brighter and more cheerful, the cat is inviting, playful , curious ?

i am stuck!

What made you come up with this image?
