Guest Speaker | Danny Treacy

On the Monday Danny came in to speak to us about his work, his practice is mostly around abandoned buildings. Danny lives in Brighton and he would be given the opportunity to go and have a look around abandoned houses at the time, using a medium format camera and focusing on composition and colour.

Danny decided to put clothes on that would be in the wardrobes, he said it felt like an instinct. This is where he started using large format camera on a tripod. Even though he found all different type of clothing, he would do the same pose and described the photos as ‘flatlay scanner.’

 

 

This was such a different piece of work that I have never seen before, but I found it fascinating and he was definitely enthusiastic and proud of what he does too. It would’ve been good for him to come in when I was focusing on my abandoned project to give me some inspiration.
