Cussons Factory

ArchitectureCussonsKersal Vale Factory

This was a sister project to photographing the Innovation Centre just across the car park. They were commissioning the new factory so it was quite a long shoot. They wanted shots that showed movement however the lines would suddenly stop as a fault was discovered or something had to be calibrated.

As can be seen from the panoramas the factory was very much ‘under construction’ but they wanted warts and all. I decided to add to the drama wanted I would shoot with an ultra wide-angle lens, which also allowed me to get shots that appear to have me in the machines. Finally I also looked for patterns and abstracts to give the designers a toolkit of images to flavour their designs.
