My two pieces for The Merchant City’s Working exhibition at the Virginia Gallery, part of the Merchant City Festival 2013.

Never one to make things easy for myself, I had the idea of creating images which would literally show the buildings peeling back to reveal the history of the Merchant City beneath.


Production still from Anthony Bull’s Hunter: a one-man play starring Patrick Neyman, The show is being presented in conjunction with David Miles’ Plastic Works exhibition at The Tabernacle in London and will run from the 9th to the 14th of September. The play was first presented at the Virginia Gallery in Glasgow (where I took these photos).
