Richard Brittain

This set has a feel of the chill, grey days of winter. But Richard Brittain has turned this to his advantage. The silver grey skies have complemented the stark, utilitarian equipment. ‘Gas-valve’ is especially effective with just enough rust alleviating the white/grey theme. It also was good to resist the obvious by turning the gasometer (Tower) into a silhouette. The ‘Telephone mast’ and the ‘Gas pumps’ are a bit too dull as subjects for them to respond to this treatment, but the ‘Gas tower’ looks like it has more potential, a tighter picture, perhaps? Back on track with the electrical insulator in ‘Don’t touch’, a fascinating image. It’s so rewarding when such mundane objects make good photographs.
