MB Photography | Projects | Reconnecting the Canal


Construction of the Glamorganshire Canal began in 1790 to link the iron works of Merthyr Tydfil with the port of Cardiff. Today much of the route is below the A470 dual carriageway, built in the 1970s. The Glamorganshire Canal has been reduced to just a few disjointed stretches of water, divided by roads and new construction. 

This collaberation between myself and Rob Hudson seeks to reconnect those stretches of water along the canal through photography. Using a single roll of film exposed separately by both photographers at different locations along the canal to reveal serendipitious images as a result of the double exposures. This is currently an ongoing project and the images here are those that have already been published on social media. You can follow the project on twitter @ReconnectingThe.
