Elephant Trust grant

Delighted to confirm that I am the recipient of an Elephant Trust Grant to develop and deliver a specific aspect of my long-term ‘Photographs from Another Place’ project.

I would like to thank their vision and support in enabling me to make a piece of work based around the original camera used by Sydney J Gearing.

The lost photographs of …

box

In the summer of 2013 I purchased a series of unknown glass negatives in batches of ten from an ebay seller. I eventually bought around 180 negatives all from the same source. Their provenance is unknown and there is little to indicate where they come from, however a research process has begun that has started to reveal some light on the subjects and locations. They appear to come from the same photographer, Simeon, who features in the first portrait of man and dog.

Here are a few early scans, in what will be quite an epic cataloguing and reviewing process.
