Simple in its graphic telling. Taken looking up and shows
Notes on CWM RHEIDOL, Ceredigion 1995

A corrugated iron roof all but fallen and masses of black shown in contrast against the featureless sky. This was taken in part response to the work of Aaron Siskind and his work, in homage, to the Abstract Expressionist painter, Franz Kline.

Unfortunately this simple structure has now been demolished leaving nothing but a concrete platform.
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.
