Sports Hall

Taken in February and March 2012 these photographs depict St Athan Boys’ Village in its ever declining state of dilapidation. The photographs concentrate on documenting the village as it is today, and showcases the effects that nature, man and the ravages of time has had on the former holiday camp.

 

Since visiting the Boys Village, the site has been purchased by a private redevelopment firm that plans to restore and redevelop the area into a new community. This means that these photographs could be some of the last ever taken of the historic location.

 

Inspiration for the framing of the shots came from the 1975 New Topographics exhibition.

 

Taken with an Opteka 0.20 AF Fisheye lens.
