Overview

In Ironworks, hand-forged iron and photography meld together to create a body of images honouring the simplicity and function of nineteenth-century blacksmith-made objects, many discovered at the locations where they had been cast aside. Together Holownia’s photographs and Sanger’s poems reveal the tangibility of light and dark in the obsolescent and rejected. Printed in offset lithography with seven tri-tone reproductions.
