Muldoon’s Picnic is an abstract observation of a Lancashire town in the aftermath of the post industrial revolution. Although the images in this project have been created in the town Rochdale, the project aims to create the feeling that the town depicted could be anywhere in the region of Lancashire. Facing such issues has lead these towns to become disillusioned to their prosperous past in the cotton industry. From an observational stand point I have attempted to use photographic abstractions to draw attention to the issues present while also making subtle connections to the remnants of past industry and prosperity in Lancashire towns.
