Description

‘Welcome to STEAM’ is a photographic book project for my HND in Photography Year 2, that was inspired by my teacher Pete Benson (AKA 'Look at This). The project framework involved capturing images at STEAM- Museum of the Great Western Railway. I captured photographs for weeks and I learnt that producing a series of images each week was quite challenging.

STEAM is located in Swindon, Wiltshire and opened in 2000. The museum tells the story of the men and women who built, operated and travelled on the Great Western Railway, a British railway company founded in 1833 and masterminded by the Victorian engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
