Siege

‘Visibility is a trap.‘
Michel Foucault, Discipline and Punish: The Birth of the Prison

From outside prisons can capture the imagination. In the dark they illuminate and shine bright cutting through the landscape with sodium splendour declaring a warning presence. These are panoramic photographs of the panoptical principle of architectural structures. We can see it all, a gods eye view, and yet we are blind to the details.

Siege was a project I realised in 1997. All pictures were taken in England.
