New World in the morning

New World radio from the Patrick Cook collection.

In the late 1980s I looked after this Bakelite radio for Patrick Cook. It is sat on the mantlepiece in a room I rented in Brockley, London. I did not want to give this back at it was an object of wonder, form and function but also beauty.

Photographed onto a sheet of 10″x 8″ black and white film on a Gandolfi studio camera using the front portion of a convertible 360mm lens.
