Bought some cacti the other day so decided to do some macro shots out of curiosity…

So today marks the end of the last chapter in the book of education, there have been some major lows and some good highs. Thanks to everyone that has helped me through the past three years, you all know who you are  It’s been a roller-coast ride but I wouldn’t change anything and would do it all over again

So spent 4 hours scanning in loads of negatives from other projects, and I have now finished editing them…out-takes from work to come shortly 

The series of work looks at the space in which my dad has worked for as long as I can remember, as I child would spend time in the shop after school and soon became accustomed to this surreal and unfriendly space. It had been a good few years since I last visited the shop and I decided that after some time I wanted to document it as it held memories to me in a strange way, despite it being an old fashioned trade in this day and age. I decided that this time I would look at the space and the people that worked with in as they were fundamental to the place and were a large part of the documenting the shop as it was here and now. I wanted to looks at some of the changes and some of the things that were still the same as I had remembered them.

 I choose to use medium format in such as small space to make more considered images that would effectively show the space as a busy work place. I also wanted to capture the light in the space as it is a light and airy shop and this was important to the atmosphere of the work for me. Over all I feel that the series has come together to show all these ideas.
