Susan Walsh’s CART project just keeps evolving. The artist had made a series of collages which I had previously photographed whilst they were on display in the Durham Light Infantry Museum a couple of years ago. This time, the ‘Double Cart’ collages are to feature in a big exhibition at The Tetley gallery in Leeds later in 2015 – my job was to photograph them so that they could be printed large enough to appear on billboards throughout Leeds city centre to promote the exhibition and the project.
Reproduction at this size requires the highest quality capture – fortunately, the medium format Hasselblad camera and PhaseOne digital back that I shoot with is capable of reproducing at that size. The file sizes are, of course, enormous but the quality is just superb.
I can’t wait to see these collages on the billboards in Leeds.
