Photography Exhibit: People Who Live In Glass Houses – The Ghosts Of Morlands

Target Practice – John Fleming

People Who Live in Glass Houses – The Ghosts of Morlands is one of the exhibitions being held at Glastonbury’s Red Brick Building during Somerset Art Weeks (running now until 6th October) and is the work of Glastonbury Artist and photographer John Fleming. He told us about his exhibition: Living, as I do, just a stone’s throw away from the old Morlands site in Glastonbury, it was almost inevitable that I was going to photograph it. In 2001 – 2002, I obtained permission from SWRDA to gain access to the buildings before they were demolished. Using a large format camera system, and ‘L’ type (long exposure) film, I made a comprehensive record of both the interiors and exteriors. The resulting portfolio of images have both historic significance, and visual impact. I printed a few in 2002 as ‘C’ type prints to submit to the RPS as a (successful) Visual Art “Associateship” panel but, other than that, they have not previously been published. This year though, the negatives have been drum scanned, and reproduced especially for this exhibition as 24”x29” Giclée prints.
All exhibits on show at the Red Brick during Somerset Arts Weeks are free to view. For more information, click here to visit the Red Brick Building website. [print_gllr id=1473]
