For just under two years now I have been working with the group Ffoto Alternative and planning their biggest exhibition to date at Bodelwyddan Castle. The work was to document the 25th anniversary of the castle. Also alongside our work we was lucky to be paired with the National Portrait Gallery who brought a selection of work up from 1988 this featured photos of The Stone Roses, Run DMC, Steven Hawkins to name a few. A great honour to be alongside such images of icons. The work that I put into the show was seen first on google maps. I noticed that there was an old drive way to the castle. Back in February I went to document the trees. This would then be placed in a filling cabinet in the exhibition. that you would walk through with your hands. The first image was pixellated the last image in-front of the castle was clear to give a sense of distance. I like the fact the filing cabinet was closed so only the keen-eyed viewer would even know it was there.
After my Well received work i was involved for their coverage of the Lambing Program. I was asked back by the National Trust to document the ‘wear your wellies day’. It was a boiling hot day with bright sunlight. I was asked to capture all the events that where on during the day. As well as some of the grounds. Again with the same process as last time. Capture the images and place them into the ticket office to attract people into the gardens. I Had model release forms this time which made things a little essayer for me.
