I worked with sculptor Emma Hunter, who was selected by British Land to create some public art installations for the new shopping centre at Elk Mill.

I photographed her two workshops with local groups. Her first workshop was a collaboration with Oldham’s poet Cathy Crabb and local ladies who could share their memories and experiences of working in the Cotton Mill for a written word based sculpture. The second workshop was at Helmshaw Mill with students from a local academy, they were asked to sketch the details and textures of the machinery to form decoration the sculptures.
