BA (Hons) Photography

Alexander Marrs

My main area of interest in photography is documentary. My degree show project is about the industry, i documented a woolen mill in Saddleworth over the period of a year. Focusing on the process, tradition and the industry as a whole. I also aim to reveal information about the relationship between the different ethnicities that work in this mill as well as in the surrounding communities and society as a whole.

I have also put three books together, two of which i bound myself. This is an area i have become particularly intersted in. The two books I bound myself contain prints from old textile printing blocks and old illustrated shipping labels. Bookbinding is certainly something I would like to delve further into. The whole process was very enjoyable and I found that the way a book is made, from the materials used, the sequencing and the way it is bound can have a big effect on a peice of work.
