Cornish Mines Project
These little collages (about 5"x5") are a first step response to some of the little details that I looked at. I'm not trying to represent the mines, or the landscape for that matter, I'm just seeing what happens when I look at some of the photos again.
I have a LOT of images I want to work from, so this is a long term project. I've been wanting to do something based on this particular bit of coastline for ages.
I don't know, or really want to know what the buildings did, the mystery of not knowing creates a place which lives entirely in my imagination.
It's an amazing mixture of wild natural beauty and strange industrial remnants.
