Touching Rust

Craig Bell

Touching Rust gives the viewer the chance to experience hidden beauty in our discarded past through the textures of places that are abandoned, forgotten and weathered. Some images are presented in high-contrast, brooding black-and-white style. In others, emotional and sensory impact is heightened using overlays of colour, texture and digital painting. These images engage the senses; feel the dampness, smell the musty air, hear the creaking of old timbers, touch the rust.
