See Matt, it IS good to re-visit old negatives
Great body of work, and I DO think that they improved with the plt/pld - now what were you thinking in terms of gum-overs (ducking for cover now).
It is a fine series Matt! I love going through old negatives and the fact you've pulled these 10 out means you should do it more. There's always some that get away in the excitement over others. I think it is a great idea to contact someone about getting in as well. Sign your waivers and get your steel toes and hard hat ready!
Excellent set, and a classic example of when colour just wouldn't cut it.
Mono was just made for exaggerating the atmospherics of abandoned buildings. I also like that you avoided any sight of a human being in the frames (or was the works already shut down?)
thanks for sharing these matt -
it's a great series and i think the
factory owners will be impressed
in how you found beauty in their old
abandoned site. i love your sense of pattern and design,
if you squint your eyes and see the "contrast" many of the images
look like abstract paintings ( and i LOVE that ! )
i hope you look through some of your other old
negatives and find some real gems in there,
sometimes a few years time really changes POV
and "discards" become "keepers" .
have fun, and make sure your tetanus booster is up to date !
( one scrape and a run-in with Clostridium tetani could mess up your whole day )
