Bob McEvoy LRPS
Bob McEvoy has a small general photography practice in Newtownabbey, near Belfast, Northern Ireland.
The images shown in this gallery are taken from a project entitled DERELICTION. The project was intended to be an exploration into documentary photography, andparticularly the effect of time on an old farmhouse.
At the request of the owners, the location is unnamed, (to protect the integrity of the premises) but suffice to say that it was once a working farm, with a mixture of stock, pigs, cattle and chickens. There is a vacant farmhouse, old barns, stables and henhouses, all of them gradually being ravaged with the decay of disuse. But once this house and its attendant outbuildings were home to a happy family, with children and grandchildren, and was a profitable business, and so the trappings of family fun and happy days remain; some of the agricultural implements and leftovers of animal husbandry are still in place, all of it now sadly decayed and awaiting the bulldozer.
I have tried to capture evidence of past human activity and endeavour, business and family life.
The images with superimposed black and white photographs contain images of the actual family who lived in the house, overlaid upon recent images in Photoshop. The images were inspired by the work of the photographer Petra Creffield, (who used a projector to place the old photographs on the walls before capturing the image.) Other than these two images, all the other photographs are unaltered, except for cropping and levels adjustment.
Some of these images will be part of an exhibition in the Second Floor Gallery, Waterfront Hall, Belfast, opening on 24th April 2009 and continuing to 25th May.
