Bed and Breakfast Signs

I am working on a new series ‘Bed and Breakfast’. I have been walking around getting to know a new seaside town in which there are a huge number of bed and breakfast’s which display a vast number of signs in different states of life.

Therefore I am going to spend some time photographing them and creating a typology and stand alone images. These first few have been taken on my phone – just to see if there is the possibility of a series.

an Talamh – folaithe

These images form part of a larger series called ‘an Talamh’, created when I was participating in an Artist Residency in Donegal, Eire in May 2015. The residency was based upon the notion of combining writing with the ritual burial and exhumation of processed medium format film negatives.

By taking words from the Irish language [Irish Gaelic], as a lead title, it gives resonance to both time, place and process.

‘an Talamh’, the name for the entire Residency series, means ‘The Land’.

‘Folaithe’, the title for following images means ‘Concealed’.
