Somebody’s Archive

‘Somebody’s Archive’

 As any bridge leads us between two points, The Castlefield Viaduct connects and crosses many pertinent themes and crucially, can be perceived as being on the cusp of what it was and what it might become. I see the viaduct as a transitional space, one that I can link to process and surface within photographic experimentation.

Alongside my work with alternative processes, I have been inspired by the correlation between the factors affecting transient spaces, photography and preservation societies such as the Manchester Locomotive Society.

The medium of photography has it’s own evolution and the once abandoned 19th century technique Wet Plate Collodion represent this concept.
