I was recently invited by Taylor Maxwell to photograph and document the various stages and processes employed in manufacturing large sections of pre-cast brick cladding. The visit to the factory in Durham was an enlightening one, having always been fascinated with manufacturing getting to see this often under-exposed part of the construction process revealed in me a new appreciation for all the hard work that goes into creating something that is often experience by an architectural photographer as the finished building. A number of photos from the visit have been added to my portfolio where you can see just a small selection of the stages involved.
