Romany WG – Jeremy Gibbs

First and foremost Mr Gibbs is a Film Editor, he worked on one of my favourite films, Dune(1984), as well as Enemy at the Gates(2001) and Property of the State (2016) to name a few.

Gibbs’ is known throughout the world for his photography and has six photo books to his name, the latest being ‘ALL IS NOT LOST‘ which feature’s Models in abandoned buildings.

His underground legendary Urbex status was confirmed when he published a collective book, ‘Beauty in Decay’, in which 49 international Urbex photographers show the best of their work. He followed this with ‘Out of Sight’ which displays a collection of his most beautiful images of street art found in abandoned places across Europe. ‘Altered Images’ focuses on emerging contemporary artists working at the cutting edge of post-production image creativity today and ‘Burn After Reading’ showcases the very best street art and graffiti. His latest book was “Beauty in Decay ll’ a follow up to the first volume with 192 pages of his own photographs.

ALL IS NOT LOST has been five years in the making and elevates Romany WG’s work to a new level.

Birnbeck Pier

Birnbeck Pier is unique in that it is the only pier in the UK joining the mainland to an island. The Pier is Grade II* listed and is on the Heritage at Risk register.

The pier was designed by Eugenius Birch and opened on 5 June 1867, this year will be the 150 Anniversary, celebrations will be taking place over the weekend of the 3rd and 4th June, at Pier View, Weston-Super-Mare (Map).

This image is looking back towards Pier View, on the mainland, from the edge of the main jetty (Pier, which is Grade II* Listed), on Birnbeck Island, you can clearly see, how dangerous the jetty is, due to rotting, warped weathered planks on the walkway.
