This is a series of work looking at bricked up windows. It focuses on the idea behind the legislation introduced in 1696, which was a property tax based on the amount of windows a house had. It is believed that the expression 'Day light robbery' originates from the window taxation. A main theme in the project is the importance of light and the psychological effect it has on oneself. The idea that a window offers natural light, a look into the future, a realisation of dreams, happiness and a desire to explore. To sustain the theme of light and dark the project was shot on film and then the prints were created in the darkroom.
