Alice in Urbanland



Continuing from my last entry, this scene always sparks my imagination. It's a very shiny metal door in a derelict row of industrial buildings but looks otherworldly to me with the promise of something better on the other side. I think this is one of the attraction for me of photography, its ability to record the ordinary everyday world but somehow render it magical. I'm particularly interested in thresholds with much of my creative practice focussing on the 'in-between' and this photograph seems to tap into that.

This is an awesome image =] If you tilt the screen back on your laptop the lines of the building disappear and it just looks like a bright door in the darkness!

Hi Chris yea great image Marc, I tipped laptop back but to me it looks like a grave with no epitaph... maybe a door to.. you know; liminal and all that.

Thanks Viv, like your reading of it, yes very grave like now you say that. Avoided using the word liminal but yes thats the one!
