Gibraltr Point – Hannah Nicklin

35xhfh

I am a fan of the Hannah Nicklin and have mentioned her on here a few times before. I was quite fascinated by this piece above when it popped up on my radar and it’s totally worth your time.

I always feel like I’ve discovered something with Hannah’s work and it’s often something about myself or about ourselves.

 

14 days of sunsets. 320 weeks of sunsets.

Rewind to 6 September 2012 and upstairs at The Cookie in Leicester City Centre Leicester Lo-Fi are having a ‘Make a Solagraph‘ camera thingy evening upstairs whilst downstairs Cats and Cats and Cats (I think) and You Slut! (I think) are doing their thing. Later that week I put one of the solagraphy coke cans on a semi-abandoned trailer on some farmland nearby pointing out towards Lutterworth. I reclaim it 14 days later (a shorter time span than I expected) when I notice that some work was taking place in the field. Despite a note explaining what the coke can was, it was bashed in at the side. The picture though………

At the same time, I attach another coke can to the side of the house and forget about it. 320 weeks later (this morning), I take it down. The results are not as good – too long an exposure? – or rather, not as distinct – half a landscape due to a gate taking up half the frame – but I still find myself drawn to the ghostly scratched out lines.

I like the process (or lack of it) of this, of it revealing itself, of having time mark itself upon it.

You should give it a go. I’m going to have another go too.
