Born in New Zealand and educated at London’s

Royal College of Art, Boyd Webb has established an

international reputation as a sculptor working primarily

with photography. Setting up each tableau, lighting it

and then photographing each of his images requires

fastidious planning and pre-visualisation. Here, in

Webb’s staged photograph, the no. 8 barbed wire

entraps its victim at the centre of a poisonous-looking

fluid.
