Pitcher at the Barbican

Project date: September  2012

Location: The Barbican Centre, Silk Street, London EC2Y 8DS

A solitary practice at the Barbican playgrounds.

When we met this guy he told us he’d been recently mad redundant from his job in the city. At the time it was not an unusual story but the focus on his pitching and willingness to let us shoot was a really interesting outcome. Shooting at the Barbican is always such fun with it’s brutalist composition and with the focus of a single person, doing something he loves made for a really special set of shots.

Shot using the Gandolfi 10×8 field camera on a grey September’s afternoon. We would have liked to have used a few more shots but we felt these two are just enough to tell the story.
