The True Nature of Trainspotting

If you haven’t seen the movie Trainspotting (or read the novel), then these prints might not make a lot of sense, but I’ll do my best to fill in the gaps: Essentially, it’s a film about a heroin addict in Edinburgh who tries to get clean. The movie begins with this iconic quote from the main character, Mark Renton, who “chose not to choose life” and instead chooses heroin.

George Sharp explores the “true nature” of trainspotting (i.e. less heroin and more trains) in this set of screen prints that references the “choose quote” from the film.
