I encountered Dale Hall's picture of a naked man set upon by a lion quite early in my life and although I have no great interest in bearded men, or animals, the daring subject matter made a big impression on me. Not least because it operates on more than one level. The style is conventional but the detailing – for example in the man's boots – is impressive. The only other image I have attributed to Hall is equally unusual, a man crated up for shipment on a steamer ship. I wish I could find more but either work gets Dale a honourable mention in this series.
