valletta, malta / january 2013 / limited edition of 50 prints

The title is a quote from Oliver Reed, who on May 2nd 1999 in a Maltese watering hole called 'The Pub' sank what was to be his last pint, then beat five HMS Cumberland sailors at arm-wrestling before dying of a heart-attack. He had been on the island filming Gladiator. The print - featuring Princess Margaret - depicts the walls of The Pub's upstairs toilets which are full of tributes, including sailors from the returning ship at the bottom of the picture ten years later.
