And the 17,000th record is for a photograph of Jean Tinguely, photographed by Reg Wilson. Tinguely was a Swiss painter and sculptor, best known for his kinetic art in the Dada tradition, officially known as metamechanics. His most famous sculpture was a self-detonating one called Homage to New York (1960) which only partially self destructed at the Museum of Modern Art, New York City!
The photograph is one of c50,000 photographs held in the Peter WIlliams Collection in the Laban Archive and was catalogued by our dedicated archive volunteer, Sara Manazza. What a dynamo! Search for the photograph on our online archive catalogue
