3 Stages, Blackrock Swimming Baths
Blackrock Baths Diving Platform RHA Annual Exhibition
“Dwarfed by modernity, redolent, regretful, almost apologetic now. A place that once shouted, screamed, teamed with life. Silenced now.”
– SJ Mannion
I took this photograph at the old abandoned Blackrock swimming baths. I wanted to capture 3 different stories if you like. One shows the Dart station in operation, where you can see the Dart and the passenger showing life and movement. Beside that you see the Baths and the Blackrock Baths Diving Platform, disused and in decay, where you can imagine a time once full of activity and beyond that you have the the sea where nature wins out in the end.
“3 Stages at the Blackrock Swimming Baths” was selected for the 2012 RHA Annual Exhibition.
