I don’t know why I’m promoting these bad people

I took some pictures of the artist Peter Doig’s studio in Trinidad last year. I then let Design Week magazine use them in the print version of their magazine on the condition that the pictures were credited and I retained copyright. They didn’t pay me but as the writer of the piece is my wife I figured it was fair enough. Now it transpires the pictures are on the Design Week website but without the credit I asked for, and as far as I’m concerned without my permission as I only supplied them for print. Anyway, Peter’s work’s great so make sure you have a look before the feature, with or without the pictures, disappears under Design Week’s subscribers only archive.

    Can I also point out that the pics were originally taken for a feature on artists’ studios in last years ‘Painting’ issue of Garageland magazine and some appear on the website along with an interview athttp://www.transitiongallery.co.uk/htmlpages/editions/g_land4/studios/peter_doig.htm
