Watermark is an exhibition of photography documenting the effects of maritime environments on man-made surfaces. All were taken a short distance from the sea, either in Weymouth, Portland or around the Lagoon of Venice: familiar places Alan has lived and worked in over the last ten years.
The images are charged with the decadence and the colours of oxidization, rot and growth. They are details of places where mankind attempts to tame or contain nature, but where the process of re-integration, subtly and surreptitiously, has already begun.
