Untitled — photographs of the Radcliffe Infirmary, 2011
Photographs by Emily Alexander document the Radcliffe Infirmary before it was refurbished, encapsulating its atmosphere as well as its architectural detail.
Spaces that once contained continuous activity are pierced by shards of light from unexpected sources, infiltrating the punctured structures to reveal traces of their previous purpose. The set of images I have produced question what makes up our experiences and how these are imprinted on the spaces around us. (Emily Alexander, 2011)
