On the outskirts of Bath, one of the UK's most popular tourist cities lies this crumbling derelict military barracks. It opened in the 1940s and closed over 50 years later in 1993. A few years ago there was "news" that the site would be converted into retirement homes - nothing seems to have happened with that plan though.
The last 18 years haven’t been kind to the buildings, it has slowly fallen apart, succumbing to nature and bored local kids. It also seems to be a practice ground for Bristol/Bath’s graffiti artists – there are many fantastically detailed pieces.
If you’re reading this and think you want to explore old derelict abandoned places, it’s worth bearing in mind that these places can be dangerous – wet wooden floors can give way and you could end up hurt in a basement, or a roof could collapse on you, etc. – be careful! Don’t forget to let someone know where you’re going just in case!
Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
Autochrome was one of the first strides toward color photography. The combination of potato starch grains and silver bromide produces a cloudy cast that makes buildings like Villa Bonnier look even more intriguing.
Anna Hollond got her fist camera on her 10th birthday, and she hasn't stopped carrying a camera ever since. About a year ago, she sought to document her memories for her journal but didn't want to do so digitally, and got her first Lomography camera. Next thing she knew, she had a trove of instant cameras, as well as a knack for instant photography.
