These black and white posters are a series of photographs of the old 19th century sandstone walls along the Embankment that have been eroded by age and acid rain. The walls are pitted with tiny holes, wall sores, which in shooting close up, become a secret, unearthly world of beautiful images resembling the craters of the moon.
The side window shows a process where these eroded bodies were copied as frottage onto paper and then made into Rayographs, which enabled me to incorporate my drawing into photography.
