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.
Busy day yesterday above and below are pictures of where I will be putting on my exhibition on friday night of photos and projection
This gallery in milazzo castle will take some beating.
I went to the library its was very different to england it was almost like a museum I didn’t see the new Mills and Boon by the front door. Beautiful marble staircase
I walked to the store yesterday done the back lane totally out in the fields and every so often there would be a strong smell of cannabis like its growing wild. There missing a trick if it is 🙂
Got a good solid collection of pil boxes i think ive got 12 or 13 images to project in the vault of the castle.
We are told we will get a tour of parts of the castle not open to the public. Watch out tony Robinson and time team
This morning I met Rossi the beetle
