Well it's a bit of a tease this one!
One very frustrating aspect of my work is that I don't always get the
chance to take good photographs of it. My workshop usually
makes a poor and very cluttered backdrop and I can't always take decent
photographs after installation. There are many reasons for this and just
some of these are; poor weather or light, a messy background such as
a building site, backgrounds that clash with the work or cause it to
blend in to the background. Sometimes there just isn't time to take photographs
after installation and since my work is often installed throughout the
UK (..and further!)
I don't always get the opportunity to return to do so. Sometimes I have
the work delivered by pallet couriers and rely on my customers to take
and send some photographs. Sometimes I just forget to take my camera.
These gates are a good example of
this. They are full of interesting detail and were installed in Barnsley
in 2007 but I haven't yet been able to photograph them properly. I'm
hoping to do so in a week or so but meanwhile here are a few tasters.
