For a number of years I had intended to create my own Christmas card.
The idea was to record an iconic landscape that was related to an assignment done during the particular year.
I also wanted to highlight what I saw as the commercial overkill of Christmas, by taking the Mickey (Piss) out of it.
When an old friend approached me to be one of the twelve photographers to photograp the 1990 Lotus calendar,
I excepted on condition that I was guaranteed the month of December.
The 1989 'Hay Plains' card was to become the first of 15 consecutive 'Pissing Santa' cards.
Unfortunately, owing to illness, the series came to an end in 2004.
