Plasterboard pink vs winter blue

This week’s photo comes from The Depot Cinema in Lewes, where I am documenting the renovations of a former brewery depot as it becomes a community cinema. My clients use the photographs to keep local residents updated on the progress of the project and to build on the excitement of this eagerly awaited venue.

It always surprises me how much colour I come across on a building site. One might expect the predominant shades to be greys, browns and blacks. In fact, I find vivid colours to photograph at every stage of the process. This bubblegum-pink plasterboard is a good example, splashed with sun and offering an appealing contrast to the blue winter afternoon light. More photographs of this project can be found here.
