Made out of 100,000 confiscated knives, this 24 foot statue is both emotive and chilling as a tribute to victims of knife crime. I wished to catch a picture of it at night and even at 9.30pm people were attracted to the statue to stop and look. It is mesmerising and the hands and eyes look right through you as you gaze upwards.
The statue is on its way down from Liverpool to Trafalgar Square London. Here are my pictures taken with my Canon 5D with the trusty 24-105mm lens. A high ISO was necessary but it adds to the gritty nature of the subject. If you get the chance I strongly recommend seeing it.
