  • Scottish Art
This image became important for John Charity as evidence of documentary's ability to express complex ideas in a powerful way. It is a photograph about the way children get fed up working as adults and choose play over work. We witness the point at which little Neil has had enough of clipping and is, instead, showing off his fake Santa beard while his father carries on with the work.
