In The Gothic Gloom

Lockdown blues had got to me before. Late last summer, I was becoming a little bored of streetscapes and cityscapes and wanted to do something more interesting.

Before the woodlands and the countryside’s came a trip one Saturday afternoon to Woodside Crematorium in Paisley to capture the atmosphere here… It was a trip partly inspired by the works of Bernard Pierre Wolff (particularly his photos of Il Staglieno Cemetery in Genoa, 2 in particular were used by Peter Saville on the cover of the “Closer” album and the 12″ single of “Love Will Tear Us Apart” by Joy Division)

I think it’s something I managed to successfully capture. I hope you agree…

One thought on “In The Gothic Gloom

  1. The first two would have me running a mile away. I’m not one for cemeteries – on my own – as you can guess. I agree they are great photos, eerie, ghostly, other-worldly, and that’s what they should be, right? The other are also brilliant but less haunting (in the ghostly sense of the word). Well worth the effort, I’d say!!
