Artist's Description

Photograph taken in the abandoned ghost village of Polphail. It was built during the early 1970s to provide accommodation for up to 500 workers at a nearby oil platform construction yard in Portavadie. The town was never occupied because the yard never went into production and now lies overgrown and falling apart. In October 2009, a group of six graffiti artists were granted permission to paint on walls within the derelict accommodation buildings of Polphail, prior to its imminent demolition.
Portavadie, Argyll, Scotland. Sept. 2013.

7 exposures from Canon EOS 5D Mark III, Canon EF16-35 2.8 L II on tripod. Processed with Photomatix, Raw and Photoshop.
1/13s+/-1+2+3, ISO400, f13, 16mm
