  • Beastley Manor cards

    48 photos

    In September 2019, I made 50 of these cards, one of which accompanied the first 50 orders of my album The Gardens of Beastley Manor. Made by tearing and cutting construction paper, with bits snipped from old magazines and catalogues, and a touch of watercolour and ink. I made 50, but somehow missed two of them while taking these photos. If you have one which isn't shown here, I'd be grateful if you could send me a photo to complete the collection!

  • Electric Poles and Towers (1916)

    39 photos

    I love the lonesome, dreary, slightly ominous aspect of these old photos, which somehow seem to illustrate the dream of the "March of Industry", already dilapidated and un-human, across the land.

    J'aime l'aspect solitaire, triste, et un peu inquiétant de ces vieilles photos, qui semblent en quelque sorte d'illustrer le rêve de la "Marche de l'Industrie", déjà sur le déclin et non-humaine, à travers le pays.
