i think probably one of the most common themes in my photographs besides nature and shadows, is type.
wherever you go, it’s there. whether it’s bold, faded ghostsigns, tiny type, carved, made of metal ..it’s everywhere. and i’m always just so completely drawn to it. sometimes it’s pretty ugly or plain, sure. but when you begin to look, you see beauty everywhere.
on my travels near and far, i’m always up for some type spotting. in cardiff, bath, poole, tenby, herefordshire and more. on torn layered posters and so much more. sometimes i don’t realise quite how drawn to it i am until i look through my photos. i definitely have a tendency for ‘proper’ signwriting as well as neon and faded type. to me though, as long as it’s pretty or interesting i’m into it, ha! interesting or unusual settings can definitely help too.
i genuinely found it difficult to chose some favourites here. are you a type spotter? or do you prefer your type purely in books?
