The photograph has been mounted on hardboard which is reinforced by a wooden stretcher. This was done by the artist. The nails with which the stretcher is attached to the board are slightly protruding and have caused dents and discolouration to the photographic paper. These are visible along the edges and both horizontally and vertically across the centre. A small loss to the foot in the lower left appears to have been retouched. There are other minor losses in places, notably along the edges. There are a few creases in places, most notably to the centre of the right edge. Held in a black tray frame. Unexamined out of frame.
