Basement Series

Edinburgh based photographer Kevin McCollum’s Basement Series is his response to space created in a bank vault.

Basement Series is a study of colour, repetition, form and texture. The images are studies of silence and an exploration of isolation. The project is a personal response to space, created in the bank vaults of 42 St Andrew Square during its transformation into The Edinburgh Grand.

The process and evolution of the project acted as a form of escapism. It allowed and encouraged a degree of experimentation. Making a series of images in the same space utilising a variety of techniques.

The work has been exhibited in Edinburgh and London and prints from the project are held in public and private collections, including the City of Edinburgh Council permanent art collection.
