A gift from an uncle: a faux blue leather bound book smelling of musk, filled with twenty-one photographs of utilitarian landscape.
The photography album is something we hold dear to our hearts, as it is a collector of memories. This book has those personal memories but not just of the people that worked there but the memories of a past industrial space, the two are parallel in their order of importance.
I see these images as a journey through a two dimensional landscape of forgotten spaces and unnamed people. Each photograph is like an exploration of an uncharted terrain.
