Over the course of this project I have redefined the way I work and the way I look at not only my own work, but all aspects of art around me. I aimed to produce a small series of images for this project, but my outcome became but a few images. It’s not like I haven’t been trying I just found that I was taking fewer but more thought out and timely photographs. I enjoy working in this way, it gives me an opportunity to really read into and around my subject giving me a really good idea about what I want to photograph and how I want to photograph. This came in particularly useful with the second shoot as I was in effect composing my images based on what I saw within the landscape, I also think that I have achieved my other aim of exploring the relationship between the sublime in industry and man. The photographs in this post are what I have chosen as my somewhat final images, even though this strand of the project is coming to an end taking photographs in this manner will certainly continue.
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among these dark Satanic Mills?
Nothing is more sublime than mighty power and strength
The Heart of the Carpet Factory
“…the most important event in the history of humanity
since the domestication of animals and plants”
