This summer I checked on eBay to see if anything by artist David Partridge was for sale. I was surprised to see a photograph from the Universal Pictorial Press and Agency (an independent news photograph agency) for sale from a vendor in Iceland (!) who I guess had bought (some of?) the Daily Telegraph photo archive. It was taken in September 1965, just before he turned 46.
Here’s the back, which was stamped a few times. It looks like the Daily Telegraph used the photo in a story in June 1971. I don’t have access to digitized archives from back then, but I’ll see if I can find someone who does.
Today’s new issue of Listening to Art is 07.11, Mr. Partridge’s Small Valleys, a naillie from 2001.
