PORTSMOUTH & SOUTHSEA'S No.1 for ARTS, CULTURE & LIFESTYLE

Secret Dockyard Project

BA Photography student Andrew Paul Hayward has started a project in Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard. Secret Dockyard is a photographic study of the Conservation, Preservation and Restoration areas off limits to the public. Andrew is now in his final year of the course and is the first student in over 4 yrs to use a large format 10 x 8 camera.

“I like to think of my work as contemporary photography using traditional methods. The Portsmouth Naval Base Property Trust (PNBPT) have been amazingly helpful and co-operative in producing the work and it is scheduled to be exhibited at our degree show both in Portsmouth and in London in June of this year.”

    That’s great, I love the use of the large format, technical camera.

    Some nice shots, I’d love to get in there! You always wonder why you never thought of it after seeing work by someone else.

    Random fact for the day: I believe it was Murray Low who last used the 10×8 camera. He had to get the bellows fixed if my memory serves me correctly.

    I have been trying to get into Block Mills – one day hopefully I will. Pleased that Andrew got quite close to them.
