Surface Project / Wall Surfaces
One of the ideas I started to experiment with in the bookmaking process for 'Surface' was to introduce the book with a series of wall images. I tried various ways to do this and I discovered how important it was to get test dummy books printed early on.
By commencing the photobook with the wall images, I wanted to highlight the power of people's presence in my community by contrasting them with these lifeless wall surfaces as an intro. Furthermore, Drogheda is historically known for its walls so I knew this could have developed for some sort of subtext.
