Kanazawa Study was completed whilst on an artist in residence at the Centre for art and architecture Kanazawa and the Kanazawa Art port. The work researches how the difference in design and material change over diverse time spans and class systems in the Kanazawa region.

Captured using an 8×10 inch view camera, the work posits the cultural, economic and aesthetic differences between the architecture from the Edo period, being the living and working conditions for the Royalty, Geisha and merchants to today’s contemporary spaces.

The work in an insight into contemporary Japan, resulting in a 500-year overview of architectural practice within the region, presented in a varying selection of large-scale architectural realms.

Kanazawa was chosen due to it’s historic significants, Kanazawa not only housed the royalty during the Edo period, but is one of the only major cities yet to be effected by any major natural disasters or conflict of war.

Each work is a collage compiled of multiple 8×10 inch negatives.
