Stadium Facade at Night, 2008


From the series 'Going to the Dogs', for which Katherine spent 3 months documenting the closure of Walthamstow Greyhound Stadium. Walthamstow Stadium was the best known and loved of all the UK greyhound tracks, it employed over 500 people and it's sorely missed. It was bought by a housing association and closed in 2008 and is currently standing disused and empty.

It was at night that the stadium came alive, and this photograph shows the famous Art Deco listed frontage neon. The sign could be seen from miles and was an exciting and familiar local landmark until the stadium closed, and since then the lights have remained off.

This is a Archival inkjet print in an edition of 30. Each print is signed and dated on the back, and will be packed carefully in a cardboard tube.

There are two sizes available, either 18 x 12" or 12 x 8" or 30 x 20"
