About the Work
“Having worked on the conservation of glass plate negatives, I know how fragile they are - and how much detail they contain compared to digital files. A ghostly figure can be glimpsed in the doorway of Denton's studio, a building which still stands in Lower Victoria Avenue, tucked behind the mainstreet shops.”
