A joint exhibition featuring mine and my friend Luke Weall’s photos of Severalls Mental Hospital in Colchester, Essex taken over the past 3+ years, held at Slackspace, Colchester. Running from 15th August to 1st September. Come along if you can make it!
An old one, found again. SNUB23 is a talented graffiti artist based in Brighton that i have the good fortune to know. More photos of a recent bedroom wall he painted at 43 towers to follow 🙂
Taken on my zenit e 35mm film camera using expired miscellaneous film that i originally thought was colour but turned out to be black and white! A lovely camera and lens for spontaneous portraits.
Another photo from the brewery….
Taken on my Zenit EM. I love film, always a nice break from digital processing
A little Sunday morning explore of an abandoned brewery. Full of pigeon poo and very dirty, but some fantastic things still in the building despite being partway through demolition……
Demolition has started on the outer buildings of Severalls Hospital. I visited again recently at night and it was harder to find a way in, but anything is possible if you try hard enough. The place certainly had a feeling of knowingness that it’s time is limited….. I will be very sad when it’s all rubble (bar the Water Tower & Admin Buildings which are listed).
This shot is taken in the old staff / kitchen area….
One of my favourite places to explore. Endless corridors. Beautiful decay. Peaceful and mysterious. It sadly won’t be here for much longer 🙁
