"Twenty rolls of film lay forgotten in a drawer. I had no recollection of what I'd taken. They were originally exposed between 10 and 15 years ago. I set about re-exposing them in collaboration with my former self, blending one vastly different life with my current existence, destroying the originals to make something new. It's been a unique and surprising experience. I'll re-expose the last roll in another 15 years. See you there." (Al Brydon) The images from 'Based on a False Story' series are a wonderful mix of beautiful double-exposed portraits of old friends and new, juxtaposed landscapes, and tactile images of balanced geometric shapes and forms. The images draw in the viewer and evoke a sense of recalling past places and people affected by the passage of time. - Cary Benbow
