here are a selection of the photos I took on our journey. My rule was – semi-temporary things. Of course everything is temporary but i wanted to look at things that might be there for a week or a month and then are gone. I got the idea from a large piece of plastic sheeting caught in the telephone wires near my house – it was stuck there for about 2 months as it became gradually more and more shredded and then disappeared.
I liked the idea of recording things that are incidental, things we interact with or see but don’t really notice, and then they’re gone.
During the walk i really enjoyed taking photos of ‘flat’ surfaces. I had been thinking about Jon McNaught’s work and how he uses small, sometimes ugly sometimes beautiful, details to give a sense of place.
