UTC@Harbourside – layers of colour and history

Posted by carlotta on Tuesday December 9th, 2014 at 11:07am

Beautiful winter light greeted me on my most recent visit to the UTC@Harbourside site but I had to work quickly before the sun set. The brickwork at the Carpenter’s Workshop was undergoing repairs. Amongst the debris was a piece of wrinkled up, dried out old paint. Graham, who was escorting me around the site, pointed out the dozens or maybe hundreds of layers of paint here on this one section of old wall. In fact, the colours I find everywhere on this site continually surprise and inspire me. They are colours of the materials and paint that make up these old buildings, along with graffiti that came after it was all closed down.

More photos from this shoot can be found in the gallery here. More information on the UTC@Harbourside project can be found here.
