Abstract

Service Station Journal is a matched pair of books visually documenting two continuous 24 hour journeys on Britain's motorways that took place on Spring Bank Holiday Monday and August Bank Holiday Monday, 2012. The journeys were broken by stopping at only official signposted service stations and spending as long at each station as was allowed. The routes taken and locations visited were determined en route and the speed limit was not exceeded. It rained on both days. / This is work is part of an ongoing research investigation of the journey as a creative, conceptual and contemplative space for photography and the role of the accident; instinct and intuition; and the ‘found subject’ in the creation of photographic work as a personal response to place and space. This interest extends to an exploration of the creative potential of the book and magazine form for the presentation and distribution of photographic imagery and the narrative possibilities this offers. / Service Station Journal (South) - 192pp, digital print, wirobound, fold over cover, B5. / Service Station Journal (North)- 184pp, digital print, wirobound, fold over cover, B5. / The work was exhibited at Bank Street Arts in Sheffield during May 2013 as part of a group show inspired by Simon Armitage's short poetry collection 'The Motorway Service Station as a Destination in it's Own Right'.
