Old School...

I adore this book. It is a beautiful collection of art and photography inspired by school. To be precise, 'Art inspired by the aesthetics of 20th century education'.

I have always had a fascination with old schools buildings. They are somewhat eerie when empty. Ive always wanted to photograph them and capture that feeling.

Abandoned pencils and toys, unoccupied desks and discarded exercise books give that feeling of human prescence but at the same time its abscence....

The book collects together a whole host of media. From photography, through to collage and illustration. I love the use of old school reports, yearbook and passport booth pictures that gives it that real nostalgic feeling.
