To start on my project i need to find different locations that will suit the needs for my project and fit the specifications of what i need. The main thing i am looking for are abandoned house’s in and around Suffolk/East of England to start with.
While searching i found out about a lady called Alison Brewster who is a photographer based in Norfolk who likes to take photos in and around Suffolk. She has a website called Abandoned Suffolk and you can find the website here. I really like the photos she has taken as it shows me different locations i can use and how i can interpret different locations to change the story of the location.
I will be getting in touch with Alison as to find out the exact location of the buildings and how i can access them as i know there are certain protocols that need to be taken when i try to get into the buildings such as getting in touch with the owners so hopefully she can provide me with some information on that.
I really like her photos and i will be looking at her photos for inspiration for the duration of the project as i think it will be really helpful when creating my photo series. She manages to capture the eeriness and aloneness of the locations that she takes photos and when i come to creating my own photo series i am really going to heavily focus on the abandoned location having a story and a dark history that the viewer can interpret.
