We recently commissioned a series of photographs to be taken around the Canal Warehouse Workshop.
Visual reminders of industrial heritage
The Canal Warehouse Workshop used to be workshops & stables for horses that pulled canal barges. Some locals have told me that they remember Snowy the horse poking his head out of the building in years gone by.
Local photographer Ian Southerin of Location Photography produced some stunning shots of the canal’s working history around our office.
The subject matter is sometimes curious and the depth of field has been used to add intrigue in the shots. We added a black border around the images so they could be finished in a square black frame:
I had to include a full shot that might interest fellow photography geeks. The top left of the shot below (above the trees) has a really interesting effect, it looks like Lee Miller’s accidental discovery of Solarisation when she was the assistant to the artist Man Ray.
