Legacy

I'm very guilty of avoiding the local photographer's honey pots. These places are photographed so frequently that there's little left to say about them visually. However sometimes I feel a bit of inspiration and head off to one of these spots to try and visualize my feelings on the subject.
The Angel of the North is probably the most well known of these locations. It's an incredible feat of engineering, which I feel, says more about the Legacy of the Steel Industry in the North East than the disused Mine Workings it lives upon. It's a stark, strong and defiant structure and has the feeling of being everlasting. I've tried to put that feeling across in this work. The Angel is unmoving and solid while all around it is in motion and transient.
