Analogue Galleries

Welcome! to the wonderful arcane AND archaic world of film photography. Here, you will find everything from huge 100million pixel large format images right down to grainy 35mm pictures and everything in-between. I'm going to make this section FUN with a capital F, so you will find experimental images that may or may not work. Then, I'm going to revive gems buried deep in my Archive of negative files and bring them into the present. I'm going to try colour processing at home and maybe even my own darkroom. Then there are things like Polaroids, panoramic backs and pinhole cameras. This is just the start!

Why not come along for the ride?

St Day-Church Cross-no logo.jpg

This gallery contains a selection of images made during my two visits to the St Day Old Church. Built 1826-8 and funded with monies made available following Wellington's victory at Waterloo, the Church served Cornwall's then booming mining communities. Sadly, following a decline of that industry in the 20th century, it became uneconomic to maintain and fell into disrepair.  In 1956 it was abandoned and left to decay. Fortunately, that situation has been reversed and it is now run by a Community Interest Company (CIC) as a Community Arts, Events and Educational  venue. On my second visit, I was fortunate to be given access to the Church by one of it's directors, Dr Lesley Trotter. She was also kind enough to do a brief interview with me, giving a brief history of their involvement and outlining the role of the CIC today.
