Notes on AMMUNITIONS METAL SHED, Old Stone Quarry, Rhayader/Rhaedr, Powys 1995

Taken at the CERRIG GWYNION QUARRY, Rhayader, Powys. This image shows an all metal ammunitions building. The metal had rusted and cracked, creating an almost aerial view.

Seeking abstractions in rural mid Wales can at times prove difficult but also when a suitable wall is found, rewarding. Fortunately, there are many ruined houses, farms and industrial buildings which may not always be easy to enter. When possible they often contain walls covered in blistered paint or peeled wallpaper. Often there is very little natural light and since I do not use flash photography exposures can vary from a few seconds up to a few hours. These long exposures allow me to become acquainted with these empty properties, their crumbling and damp walls and whilst the film is exposed to the subject I can settle into the moment and become calm within the buildings atmosphere.

The crazied metal work stressed from exposure to the elements offered a birds-eye type view.
