BOUNDS GREEN & EVERYTHING INBETWEEN




This project was a personal piece that looked at the environment and community of my local area, Bounds Green. With such a diverse and creative community full of history I set my self the project to produce an editorial piece that gives readers an insight into the area. An honest piece that reflects my personal view of the area as well as local residents of all ages and genders.



Photography:

The entire project was shot on 35mm black and white film which I scanned and retouched. I used my Contax SLR and a 50mm lense to shoot all the images to keep a uniform focal length.

Shooting on film allowed me to take more care with each shot and therefore resulted in a range of more considered images.

The Publication:

The hardcover coptic bound book is split into three parts and uses black and white laser printing as well as risograph. The publication is wrapped in an embossed card stock sleeve which shows the map of Bounds Green.


Part one of the publication: Local history.


Part two of the publication: Family.



Part three of the publication: Photography & local’s stories.


Design:

The publication is a hardback coptic bound book which has been wrapped in a saffron yellow bookcloth. Part one of the book is B/W laser printed onto G.F Smith Pistachio Colorplan paper stock. Part two is two layer, blue and black risograph print on peach toned Canford paper stock. The third and final chapter of the book is printed on recycled paper stock which has a light grey tone.
