This is an example of work from Roger Reese's 'Museum Series' which he began in 2014 when the Brecknock Museum at the Shire Hall closed for major refurbishment. This involved the demolition of the Victorian police station and the utilitarian Brecknock County Hall, a rather ugly 1960`s building attached to Shire hall via a suspended walkway. Whatever the architectural merits of these two buildings, they would have played a major part in the lives of Breconshire people. Once demolished, they are gone for ever and quickly forgotten. This became the catalyst for the Museum Series, the intention of which was to record the whole external environment of the buildings before the changes took place.
When conducting research for the project Roger visited the buildings many times between 2014 to 2018 sketching and taking many photographs. He found that moving the camera to create a continuous panorama was akin to the way that we might quickly scan a scene with our eyes picking out points of interest and ignoring others. He was also struck but the continually changing weather conditions and the effects of lighting which dramatically affected the appearance of the buildings. This explains the use of distortion, the breaking up of images and in some cases the use of varying lighting sources.
