The grade II listed pier has been closed since 1994, although it has been sold on a few times since then no progress has been made, so it sits decaying for now. I would have loved to actually get on it and explore, but taking photos from the shoreline had to suffice.
My end of year show for my final major project at college.
For this project we got to write our own brief and I decided to go with the theme of texture and lace carrying on experimenting from the self portraits Natures Lace and Lace and Lust I had recently done.
I wanted to take this project further and look into different ways of putting the texture onto the body, and these were my final images, I used an overhead projector with lace over to create the shadows on her body. These photos were shot on my Yashicamat using triX, self developed and then scanned, after printing i wanted to create a layering of texture and did this by adding accents of lace onto the photos.
For my exhibition I didnt want to have my photos mounted plainly on the wall, again I wanted to take my ideas with the lace further, and came up with the idea to hang my photos in front of the lace that I used to create these shots. I’m really pleased how this came out and i think creating the a 3D effect by having everything hanging added an extra element to my work creating an installation out of my photos.
I will upload some of the other work that i created for this project soon.
