God’s own junkyard - The Neon Man
These photos feel wonderfully festive.
After making neon signs for 37 years, Chris Bracey has truly earned his nickname, The Neon Man. He learnt the process from his father, who used to make signs for amusement arcades, fairgrounds and circuses.
Working as a neon light artist, Chris’s work is very desirable and his reputation has been amplified by high-profile collectors and blockbuster films featuring his signs (among the movie list you can spot several fictional cities including Superman’s metropolis, Tim Burton’s Batman’s Gotham City, and Judge Dredd’s Mega-City).
These shots have been taken at his warehouse in East London, dubbed “God’s Own Junkyard”, where Chris has collected up to 1,000 neon signs, including many of his own works and film props.
