Creating the images on location in quarries in Wales, Anglesey & Sandstone caves below Nottingham, the cave photographs were all lit with flash as there was no lighting in these rarely seen sites. Fascinating and challenging to create images in total darkness.  Dark, rainy but atmospheric quarry & precipitous locations made the instrument photographs exciting propositions but resulting in these powerful images, not quite sure if these would be strictly considered architectural photography but it was to help visualise architectural devices on location.
