41 Hewitt Road project gave me the idea for my series of photographs which I made as regards the references to time and locations.At the beginning I did not know what will come out, and if this pictures will be interesting for the recipient.
I was making images for a few days at the former industrial area in Nuneaton where I currently live. Every day, I photographed the new elements left by the people and in not aware manner exhibited in the natural environment.
During my walks around the neighborhood, I spoke with many people which, remember the times when the mines and other factories were opened and areas adjacent to it were inhabited by their employees.
Currently, these areas are places where I bring the dog for a walk, but some locations have been re-developed as Brad stone road, where are built modern apartments and houses.
