This building was once used by the Royal Mail but had been vacated many years ago and became an eyesore on this area of Bristol, as it was left to lie in ruin. The image here shows it under demolition and it will be replaced by a modern building, typical of the re-generation that is currently taking place in this part of the city. It was photographed on a bright early morning after I had viewed the potential many previous mornings as I would drive my wife to work. The intention was to convert it to Black and White and because of the conditions at the time it very much worked in my favour.

Don Hooper, photographer with over 40 years’ experience, International Multi Award Winning and widely recognised within the industry; receiving accolades in London, Paris, Moscow, Berlin, Budapest, Tokyo and America. Specialising mainly in Black and White, his world as we see it through the lens, captures life in a contemporary form; exposing the sensitivity and beauty nature possesses. With the intention of fabricating both stillness and movement within his shots, Hooper over the years has built a diverse body of work where his creative flare and eye for the bewildering shines through.
