Visit to SS Great Britain
By Ruth Harrison, 27th May 2022
On 16th May a group of co-researchers were welcomed as guests on SS Great Britain. Ruth Harrison created a textural portrait of the ship and writes here about her photographic practice.
I love taking photos. I find colour, texture, perspective and content fascinating. I love subtlety and messages and I love pictures of the natural world. I’d like to take more pictures of people but that feels intrusive. I use some photos for cards and I like to do online collages, which I like to give to people who feature in them. You can make bookmarks and pictures to put up in your home. It’s so easy with digital photography, and cheap to process at Boots! I’m very grateful to the man who introduced me to digital photography. It’s a far cry from that old Morecambe and Wise joke – “Someday my prints will come, like in Snow White”! We’ve all been there.
