Artwork description:

'An Experiment To Measure The Weight Of History' is a long term project, exploring themes of heritage and history in relation to our experience of the past through mediated 'preservation', narratives which influence our perceptions of history and what is deemed 'historic', and the ideas and processes which determine how we experience heritage in the 21st century. This part of the project was shot at Wycoller Hall, believed to have been the inspiration for Ferndean Manor in Charlotte Bronte’s ‘Jane Eyre’.

This photograph was created on expired medium format film with a simple Chinese Holga camera...both film and equipment lending an uncertainty and serendipity to the process and outcome. The result is a unique representation and an ethereal effect which evokes historical photographic processes and techniques. In our digital age, the use of such methods is itself considered by some to be anachronistic, yet seems entirely appropriate when applied to creating images of subjects which are themselves hundreds of years old.

Archival C-Type print from a black and white medium format film negative scan. Signed and numbered on the front in the border, and coming with a certificate of authenticity.

From May 2017, my analogue photographs will be available in a total edition of 10 + 2AP. Square format prints are available in the following sizes:

1 x 36x36in print (42x42in with border) - £495.
2 x 24x24in prints (30x30in with border) - £250.
3 x 20x20in prints (22x22in with border) - £175.
4 x 14x14in prints (16x16in with border) - £125.

Sold unmounted/unframed. Please get in touch if you wish to discuss mounting and framing options, or to purchase a different size from that listed here.

Unmounted C-Type prints are produced using a traditional photochemical process, with true photographic paper exposed from the digital scan and then developed. The gallery-quality archival paper used is selected by me as appropriate to the particular photograph from papers manufactured by Fuji, Kodak and Ilford. All prints come with a wide border for easy mounting and framing.

Additional images simulated and for illustration purposes only.
