George Scane – Periperhal
George Scane has just graduated from Bristol UWE and is currently exhibiting his Peripheral project at the PITCH Exhibition in London. When describing his project he explains:
“Place is as hard to represent as it is to define, in order to represent one has to understand, in order to understand one has to experience.
Having moved to Bristol from London three years ago, I have had little reason to stray from the circuitous daily routes took in the city centre and its immediate environs. But despite locating myself firmly in the heart of the city, I felt I didn’t really know it, or at least that there was a large part of it that was hidden from view. Bristol is an uneven city, both in topography and distribution: a small city centre is surrounded by vast areas of suburban housing, in turn bounded by a thin red line on an official registry map that demarcates the city from the rest of the world.
So armed with a bus pass, an official A-Z of Bristol and a Mamiya 7 camera, I took to the arteries of the city, winding my way to its extremities so that I might take its ‘pulse’. This project is a record of that journey.”
