Fading Light

As the winter months are approaching quickly, the hours of light begin to decrease, the fading light gives some dramatic views both east and west. New wheels and a wide angle lens...

Hurrican Igor - Coastal Aftermath


"It's been churning in the Atlantic Ocean for days... but on Sunday hurricane Igor pummeled the island of Bermuda.

Although huge in size (about a thousand miles long from north to south) Igor hit Bermuda in a weakened state of only a category one with winds between 75 and 80 miles per hour. Bermuda may see over six inches of rain before the tropical system pulls away from the island completely. Some reports stated that between eight and twelve feet of beach and sand on the southern end of the island had already been pulled out to sea from beach erosion and battering waves" (fox17online)

Walls That Talk


- Second oldest building in Dockyard
- Housed the Royal Marines Light Infantry
- Bermuda's maximum security prison from early 1960's - 1994
- Regeneration projects ongoing to restore the building into its original state which will make a popular tourist spot.

Gaining access to this site was amazing as it enabled a genuinely eerie sense of 'history'. A photojournalistic conceptual project seemed to jump out as I cautiously wondered through the small rooms.

A combination of old and modern stories seem to mix through these structures in an incomprehensible amalgamation that seemed to unravel only within the small intimate details.

Trying to get into the frame of mind of someone in these cells is nearly impossible when spending a mere 5 minutes in the individual cells. However, I found a few objects that can mean so much more to someone 'inside' . For example the 'lock and key' is not just a mechanical fastening device... it is the symbol defining being 'locked up', 'lack of freedom' and 'held against one's own will'. This may seem obvious but to someone staring at the same object for hours it can then take on new meanings relating to this idea.






The ceiling fan may also be a simple object but how many hours did the inmates lay in their beds staring up at these spinning blades? Dizzy with guilt? Or more literal ... missing their family home with air-conditioning. The small details within historical walls can be very interesting as they can induce fascinating narratives into the creative mind


A sense of freedom?
