The Leeds-Liverpool Canal
Every bridge from Melling Road Aintree to Tate and Lyle's Love Lane refinery (1985)
This project was undertaken as a single walk along a stretch of the canal in 1985, taking in the districts
of Aintree, the then rural areas of Netherton
and Ford, Orrell, Kirkdale and finally Vauxhall.
Each of the thirty seven bridges appear in a single print arranged in sequence and concluding
with the dead-end at Tate and Lyle's. The work records the canal as it passes through a mixture of
industrial and housing estates and captures the waterway in an unkempt and somewhat sorrowful state.
A new stretch opened in 2009, the Liverpool Canal Link, now connects
the former dead-end to the Albert Dock.
38pp, thirty seven fibre-based gelatin silver prints mounted on paper, stitched in sections.
