Artist's description:

In March 2017 I returned to the derelict Eckersley Mill site in Wigan, Lancashire, where I had previously shot a series of photographs in 2015. A once-majestic cathedral of the industrial revolution and testament to Victorian technological and social progress, the abandoned and decaying building are now a crumbling, faint echo of the past amidst a present which has moved onward again into a new age of technological and social progress perhaps even more significant than the last. But in bright spring sunshine, the buildings...and the decay itself...become magnificent and beautiful once again in a new and different way, despite their continuing and inevitable decline.

Soundtrack: Ann Sexton - You've Been Gone Too Long (Seventy 7 Records B-side, 1971)

Aluminium mounting is the ultimate ready-to-hang enhancement to your home decor, a spectacular image and a sleek and modern mounting system which creates a stunning piece of gallery standard artwork. The photograph is professionally lab-printed onto Fuji Crystal Archive DPII paper using a traditional photo-chemical process, then mounted and sealed on a 3 layer aluminium substrate (for superb stability and warp-resistance). Finally, a UV-protective coating is applied to protect the print. Wall-fixings are pre-fitted, so the piece is ready to hang straight away.

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.

Gallery wrap canvas prints are produced using Epson K3 inks on heavyweight 100% cotton canvas, to create pieces with richness and luminosity along with a wonderfully tactile texture. They are stretched onto a frame made from sustainable wood, reinforced for stability and fitted with robust metal fixings for easy hanging

Please be aware that quality of this kind takes a little time. Turnaround times vary from 7 business days for unmounted prints to 10 business days on average for canvas and aluminium mounting, after which I take delivery of the work for inspection before shipping to you. Guaranteed to be worth the wait!
