Junction Project

I don’t ever take images of street art really, as is clear from my current and previous work. I have never really been attracted to it as a subject matter for my own photography if I am honest. However, when I met with Tracey Thorne from Ghost Streets and heard about her upcoming Junction Project I knew it was something I would have to turn my hand to. The project is focused on documenting street art on display along a section of canal in Digbeth, running from East Side to the Camp Hill locks. Over a two week period I made multiple visits to this stretch of canal in an effort to document the area and its art in as original a way as I could. Using my Leica M6 with Zeiss 35mm lens, Kodak Portra 400 and Ultramax 35mm film, I focused on the interplay of the artwork with the urban space, nature, and life in the area. Below is a selection of images from the 4 rolls of film that I shot for the project. For more information please visit here.
