A trip to Boys Village.







“Boy’s Village” is an abandoned holiday camp not far outside of Cardiff. The site was used by the Boys’ Clubs of Wales from the 1920’s to the 1990’s, and since has been left to become derelict.

I felt that the abandoned, broken and overgrown look of the place fits well with the lights I have created. They are old and battered (partly by me and partly how I acquired them), so I felt it was fitting to take them to somewhere that could be considered home. Unfortunately there is no electric on sight, so I will be editing the pictures to give the impression of the lights on at twilight.

The places I have taken pictures include the swimming pool, the church, a warehouse type building and what seems to be dorm rooms.
