With the initial view to carry out an ethnographic study, The Sculptors reflects on the culture of the University of Brighton's sculpture department. My images, and the installation of the work, resolve a personal uncertainty over the decision to study photography over sculpture. The project illuminates my sculptural inclination through documents of incidental sculptures, still life and staged constructions. The exhibition brings together objects and materials from the department in an installation, presenting the photographs and materials as artefacts. Although the images were made initially from the perspective of an outsider, my gradual integration within the sculptors has enabled me to make well curated photographs, which tap into individual working processes and cultural traditions within in the department.
