Queen Elizabeth Country Park Star Trails

Loving the clear winter sky’s recently! Snapped this beauty at Queen Elizabeth Country Park in Horndean earlier this week.

Falling deeper and deeper in to non-place

A lot of my thoughts of late have been moving more and more down the vein of non-place and the idea of space in a super modern world.

When does a space become a place? And when is it a non-place? A non-place are areas made to serve the growing needs of a sprawling human race. They facilitate our lives but only serve their purpose with our presence.

Examples being; supermarkets, car parks, airports, hotel rooms and even buses and trains. The list is ever growing and something I seek to explore more and more through Photography.

10 Paignton Avenue

As part of an on going exploration of the relation between Life, Death and Photography, Andrew photographed the partially cleared home of his late grandparents.

The exploration, in this case, sought to document areas that trigger personal memories. From the living room where the whole family would cram in to for Christmas present opening to the chair the cousins would fight over.

Further to these personal memories come elements which all of us can connect with on a level. The difference between a worn carpet compared to where the bed once stood. The decay as part of a house which was a struggle to keep. The garden which was once a center of great pride, sitting unloved and rotting.
