Wedgwood Institute, Burslem

Yesterday as part of the Photographer’s Collective North Staffs, I went to the Wedgwood Institute in Burslem, it’s probably the finest building in Stoke-on-Trent, but over the past 20 years has become almost derelict in many parts. During the next few years there are big plans to bring it back to life, huge amounts of work will take place to become a thriving centre for the arts and businesses. We were taken around parts which are fairly dangerous now and may possibly be spaces PCNS could eventually use for a darkroom, office and exhibitions. My photographs are fairly basic, I was interested in the dereliction and the shapes and textures they created. There was very little light so on a future visit I will take a tripod, I don’t really like shooting at ISO1600 as I dislike grain, but these are what I came out with.
