Each time I explored an area of train tracks in search of clothing, I took a camera and a light. I had not done this before as I normally collect clothes without recording the environment. The decision to do this was not taken lightly because taking all the equipment to Mexico and carrying it around in a potentially hostile environment with temperatures of 36 degrees was a major consideration.
Once I came across an item of clothing that had been left by the tracks I photographed it before removing the item to take back to the U.K. My intention was to create images that were both documents of a space, landscape photography and evidence of activity, with a visual reference to forensic photography.
The first part of my major project was highly successful, I collected 35 kilos of clothing and I met lots of extremely helpful people who are willing to help with my project on my return to Mexico next year, hopefully. Thanks to A-N for their support, without the travel bursary this progress would not have been made.
