Can you explain your use of archival materials within your work, and where you source these? How does this relate to your photography?
I’ve been collecting archive material for many years, of various types: provincial and national newspapers, press photography, amateur photography, car brochures and manuals, engineering manuals, drawings, plans, propaganda material etc. It all has such a unique language, not just in its original purpose and narrative but the way in which it’s been collected or forgotten, sold, traded etc. — it has such energy and potential. An intrinsic strategy of the work is reimagining how this can exist today.
