For this Limited Edition print, Forster has taken his highly detailed drawing of a congregation clapping through the photogravure etching process to create a new image which is similar, but different to the original. The drawing itself originated from a photograph found in an old National Geographic magazine. By taking the image from the printed page to a one off and then back to a reproduction, Forster elicits a new work.
