Here’s an embedding of my SHU colleague Steve Spencer’s short film of photograph / digital painting montages of views of Stanage Edge, a popular Peak District ridge south west of Sheffield. In his film Steve examines the act of representation – the attempt to capture something of the essence of the scenes.
Stanage interests me on a number of levels, it is very accessible to Sheffielders, it is a popular climbing venue and was opportunistically quarried for hundreds of years as testified by abandoned millstones and chisel marks in the rock, before being redefined as landmark / recreational asset.
Steve is a visual sociologist / cultural anthropologist.
