"We Are Ghosts" started as a collection of images taken of old buildings left to rot, ruined, or forgotten in the Gwent Valleys of Wales taken with a homemade 8x10 camera on Harman Direct Positive Paper. The hope of the series is to recapture the beauty of these old buildings before many of them are either knocked down, 'modernised' or hidden behind gaudy plastic signage - unnoticed. Taking them out of their usual context an emphasising the detail of the buildings, I hope to create a set of images that can be timeless and interchangeable between each place, blurring any distance and cultural differences they any have.
Each image is taken using a technique that produces a positive image straight from the camera with no inter-negative, meaning that each image, like each building, is unique.
The series is now expanding and includes both b/w and colour images taken in Poland and Georgia (Republic of).
