I did a bit of BT ArtBox hunting today, and one of my favourite finds was this one:
“Long Distance” by Benjamin Shine
I love your photography!
Thank you! 😀
This is awesome! Was it photoshopped, or is there actually a Giraffe making a phone call with somewhere in the world!?
Haha! No, it wasn’t photoshopped, it’s a sculpture. Great, isn’t it? 🙂
I really like the idea for this sculpture. Your photos are great.
Thanks! The photos are only as good as the subject matter… 😉
Carl Burge from Remember When UK restored this original cast iron British Telephone Box (booth) for the artist Benjamin Shine. Benjamin created,& installed ‘Gilbert’ the Giraffe to raise awareness for the amazing British Charity ‘Childline’. It recently sold for £17,000 with all of the money going strainght to the charity. This was the only original phone booth, all the others were fibreglass & all amazing too. Beautiful photography Haikugirl , thank you so much for sharing it. 😉
Wow, thanks for the information. I didn’t know it sold for so much, or that it was the only original phone booth. I really loved this piece! 🙂
