Waterloo Bridge was re-constructed
during the Second World War
and because the traditional workforce
was depleted the construction
company employed a small but
significant number of women to make
up the shortfall.
I wanted my photographs to talk about
the bridges physical structure over
the ebb and flo of the Thames whilst
being informed by the narrative
of the bridge's tale.
Three intimate spaces are integral
to any bridge - the entrance to the
bridge, which invites us - the crown
of the bridge, where at its highest
point evokes in us a sense
of weightlessness - and the dark
underside of the bridge which
is atmospherically loaded.
My images were made by working
from these fundamental spaces
of Waterloo Bridge.
