It really is Dismal at Dismaland
Resident candid Bristol photographer Colin Moody is on the scene at Dismaland.
Welcome to my dismal collection of photographs.
1. Dismal Cinema.
2. Take a leaflet
This photograph I call take a leaflet.
It’s a photograph of a person handing someone else a leaflet.
3. Don’t bother looking at the art?
Good luck seeing the art because someone will almost certainly stand in front of you, take a picture and then just stay there telling all their mates how cool it all is.
4. Dismal queue
5. Another queue to sit on the bench that has the seagulls all over it
This picture is actually 10% less dismal than the last one.
6. Nailed that shot
7. Only another twelve hours left till the end of your shift?
8. Men Don’t Protect
10. Is it in focus?
Can you see the seagull drinking the pint?
11. One of the key moments here
12. Oh the queue
Serves me right for going for fish and chips.
Nice cloud though.
It’s like one of those clouds from that popular children’s animation film places.
And it hovers over us all like a… Cloud.
13. The fire pit was stoked and the embers were flying
The petrol made your eyes water.
If you text you won’t notice when they singe holes in your jacket.
Bonus. I enjoyed Dismaland
You can see more of Colin’s ‘other’ work this Sunday 27th September at the M Shed for the Celebrating Age Festival in a photography project called ‘My Eyes’ – exploring the use of photographs as conversation starters for life story work with elder people.
