Alex Currie- Degeneration

Alex Currie's project entitled Degeneration documents Salford, Glasgow and Edinburg's problem of areas becoming run down and eventually abandoned. The images mis en scene contains council flats and terrace streets and grey skys and interestingly not one single person. The concept clearly contains an opinion from the photographer that these areas are concrete and brutalist and decaying locations. As a inhabitant himself of these northern typically working class areas, Currie discusses issues of an area left behind with changing times. Gone are the prosperous industrial factories of the north which many of these housing estates were originally build for and sadly for many of these locations jobs and work has never returned. Currie believes the abandonment of these areas can effect those very people who are left behind and explores how an areas appearance can effect ones subconscious and thus attitude and motivation.
