HALL OF CLAIMS TO FAME
2017 / An archive of claims to fame / All words and images by Tenaya Steed / Special thanks to Katie and The Wolves, Jon The King, and everyone who shared a claim / Exhibited at INTO THE DARK, Dalston
A search for claims to fame, personal pride and small-town glory. The Hermione Granger lookalikes who turned on the Christmas lights with Carlos from Emmerdale, the fellas who fitted the carpet for the last ever Concorde, every kid aged 9 who sang Elvis on stage at Butlins. A hall of fame that’s clapping harder than your mum and dad did when you played townsperson 1 in the school play. Hollywood Boulevard eat your heart out.
