Banksy – Bristol Bomber

This feature was originally commissioned by Dazed and Confused magazine, who decided not to print it over concerns they’d be prosecuted for inciting criminality. It was eventually printed in Level Magazine in 2000 and on Squall.co.uk. The article inspired Channel 4′s now defunct Alt World strand to commission us to make a short film with and about the artist. We called it ‘Boom and Bust’ and it was shot and cut in two days by myself and Jim and Jez Squall and was broadcast in August 2001.

The photos in the feature were taken in Bristol by Simon Chapman .
