Cleaning Nelson by Graham Turner

Cleaning Nelson’s Column, 20 June 1986.

‘Despite my fear of heights, I volunteered to climb to the top of Nelson’s Column to see it being cleaned. I just had a ladder strapped to the column.

No scaffold, no harness, no safety barriers – just my signature on a damage disclaimer form. In one frame you can see my knuckles clenched to the ladder. My other outstretched arm held the camera, with a fish-eye lens. My knees didn’t stop trembling for a long time afterwards.’

About Graham Turner

Graham’s career started when as a boy he used to send photos to the local papers in my area and progressed via working in a local paper darkroom, Eastbourne Herald photographer, to Keystone press agency to freelance when he first worked for The Guardian in 1983.

A staff job followed and he retired from there 1st January 2016 (it was a schoolboy ambition to be a Guardian photographer). It was GREAT, BRILLIANT and the best job ever.
