Fly by Night

Adrian Burnham (UK)


For the past year, Adrian and his research partner Richard Broadbent have been interviewing veteran flyposters about their lives and involvement in unauthorised commercial billsticking throughout the UK and abroad. These oral histories evidence a rich living heritage and rare opportunity to scrutinise a hitherto very much cloistered world, with its associations with music and promotion; incidents of public and media interaction; contentions with the law and municipal authorities; the changing face of our urban environments; competition for wall space and territories; developments from cash-in-hand days to more professional set ups.
