As I have mentioned in previous posts I had intended to shoot some of the images for this series in a 'before and after' style. After doing some experiments it became apparent that this would not be possible with many of the images that I shot. However these images have worked well:
I have chosen to include these images in the final set because I feel they have worked well and are extremely strong and striking images. I left image was taken early in the project when I had more limited access to the medium format camera, and the second close to the end. Many of the final images, especially the portraits, where shot towards the end of the project, so you don't really get a sense of the time span the project stretched over. However I feel by adding these images I feel you start to get a sense if that, because it is clear to see that these images have been shot at different times of the year. As well as them bringing more context to the work I am also very happy with how these two images have come out. I managed to position the camera in nearly exactly the same place for both shots, and you can really get a sense of the change in seasons, and also activity on the site. I intend to display the images as above, over a double page spread so you can really see all the details.
