Cafe Royal Books- Craig Atknison

Craig Atkinson is a very interesting practioner that I have been researching, looking at the books he creates he uses a lot of photography, Some books are focused on specific place which obviously relate to my project, but the pieces i am most influenced by are his books entitled ‘someone elses…’ these are books made from images found in old undeveloped films in cameras brought in charity shops. I found this such an exciting concept, they create such a personal insight into lives of mystery people. This is relevant to my theme as it looks at the memories and experiences of people in a ‘place’ for example the images of people at home with a dog, they are completley comfortable within that setting, they all have thier own personal links with the surroundings.
