These photographs were taken with a primitive Kodak DC40 digital camera, the quality is low compared to modern cameras. As part of an exploration into digital photography this was my first documentary study using this technology. Titled "Blue Brick, Red Paint & Sawdust" this work formed part of the work for my MA degree at BIAD, Birmingham. UK.
