These photographs are all small sections of painted and corroded corrugated iron seen on small buildings in the Western Isles of Scotland. I'd photographed the complex patterns of colour and texture on these buildings for years when it occurred to me that occasionally I saw something in these patterns that might look like a landscape - sometimes even a landscape I knew. Others seemed to share my conviction that there was indeed something there.
Taking these photographs involves looking very closely for plausible scenes and I've found that there's ample scope for self-delusion here. Photographically there's a challenge to realise enough depth of field, which I resolve through focus stacking several images identical save for point of focus. Turning the image on its side seems to add to the degree of abstraction.
The supply of these buildings is diminishing very fast as they deteriorate from a usable hut or barn to disused and then to a safety hazard in winter's fierce winds.
