I was commissioned by Brighton’s West Pier Trust to photograph remnants of the pier
I wanted to show hints of the barn where they were being stored so I created a stage using pallets
I used studio lighting to add to the dramatic feel
The influence of these details is thought to have come from Brighton’s Royal Pavilion.
Although there are hundreds of pieces in storage, it’s only a fraction of the original pier.
For this series, I was photographing fragments that were on sale in the West Pier Centre
I was keen to make a visual link between the fragments and the pier
