I recently took part in a history photography project called ‘Finding Samuel Morley’. This took place at Backlit Gallery in Sneinton, Nottingham, which was once owned by Samuel Morley who used the gallery as premises for his textile hoisery factory in the Victorian 1800’s. Samuel Morley was a renowned philanthropist and gave money to fund education for the working classes. So I’ve been visiting old historical buildings in Sneinton borough, photographing and researching the history of Samuel Morley during this summer.
Now that this project is due to end this November I’ve decided to start an urban exploring photography group in Nottingham. We would like to visit and photograph derelict buildings, places and urban decay. We will be looking at themes such as street photography, abandonment and regeneration.
To support this project I’ve created a Facebook group Photography & Urban Exploring. If you would like to join then please email me for an invite. I will also be writing updates and posts about our urban excursions on Photos And Postscripts too.
