LOCATION: Barnsley / South Yorkshire / West Riding
WORDS and FILM: John Ledger
The Mary Celeste Project (The Scene of the Crash) uses photographs of the former West Riding of Yorkshire area, layering sounds and thoughts of near pasts, lost futures and dead dreams. I focus on blind spots and unexamined areas to speak about what is emotionally covered-up in UK society, specifically in the wake of the 2008 financial crash, with the ensuing zombification and intensification of neoliberal economics.
