    These images depict the remains of an old hay barn on the sussex downs. I returned to this location after photographing it last summer to find that even less of the original structure remained.

    A very personal project which explored the notion of objects becoming personified through the characters and personalities of the people which used them; in this case chairs.

    Shot digitally, at night, with a Nikon D3100 and a Nikkor 35mm prime lens.

    Hi Matt, I heard from Justine about your photography which I think is mature, intelligent and great to look at, well done. I know you were looking for a venue as are a lot of artists I know. I can't offer you space as it's my main source of income, but I started in a shared house in Kemp Town, so it's do-able. Mark out the venues you like the look of and visit/chat to the owners re: next year. Hope you can make it on Fri May 2 for a bevvy. Have a look at Bridget Smith's photos, old mate of mine

    Hi Alex, thank you it’s very much appreciated!
    I understand, networking is key I shall take your advice and make some business cards to hand out as well. Yes I should be available to pop in for drink in May, thanks again and I appreciate your kind words!

    The main concept behind these images was to look at the grittier side of the people of Brighton, I wanted to avoid really polished commercial portraits and achieve something which I believe reflects an honest view of where I live and work.

    I decided to shoot these images on a Mamiya RZ67 with medium format film, I strongly believe that by using film, it reflects the organic concept I was aiming for.
