Incidental Corners - Tiled Corner with Ramp

‘We live in an age which is pervaded by a growing and extremely uncomfortable conviction that something is about to burst. By the great majority this possibility is referred to the external world, where indeed it may well occur. The big bang may be a multi-megaton H-bomb, or some space experiment which calls down upon us a brief, annihilating gesture of cosmic irritation. But it is also possible that our external anxieties may be projections of an approaching explosion within ourselves. Man may be about to burst from his psychological swadding clothes – an event as crucial and as perilous as any that could occur in the external world. Something of the sort is already happening. Psyche, the immortal butterfly, is struggling within her cacoon.’
Alan McGlashan: ‘Psyche Unound’

About barryfalk

I am a self-taught photographer based in West Sussex. I photograph ‘Incidental Spaces’, places tucked away and neglected: edges of car parks, junk-filled garages, loading bays, abandoned spaces, vacant rooms, ransacked offices. These are the overlooked details of a city: architectural features which appear to serve no function. My images seek to capture an aspect of the city which is not willingly acknowledged. These places can be read as metaphors for loss and as such are suffused with a disturbed sense of self, what Freud referred to as the unheimliche: the familiar which has become alienated through the process of repression. However, when re-seen, photographed from a particular angle, in a certain light, these incidental spaces turn out to be resonant with association.
