I made this photograph in my hometown of Wexford, Ireland in 1992.
I loved the old 'Woodenworks' as the quayside was known.
I called it 'Infinity' but it is only infinite as an image - the subject no longer exists.
I look into the light. Searching for photographs against the light, contre jour, can produce maximum drama. But there is a whole lot more to it than that. Textural and compositional elements are also pushed to their limits. Film starts to behave unpredictably.
It is hard to shoot into the light and to retain information both in the depths of shadow and the peaks of highlight.
In this regard it is a typical of my pictures.
The image was photographed with a Nikon F3HP using a Nikkor 24mm wide angle lens. The film stock was Kodak Tri-x, the legendary film long favoured by artists and photo-journalists the world over.
