Night Alleys: the secret shadows and faded luminous embers of an older, more archaic time, there is a certain aesthetic nostalgia that one can only find when exploring these lesser-known backstreet's. When traversing these historic corridors of Oxford one is overcome by a particular sense of self awareness, the enigmatic ghostly presence of a primordial human fear that drives us to view things in a different context.
It is this irrational poetic, the cognitive imagery of Oxford that has been captured in this series of photographs. The structure of this micro-pilgrimage begins at St Edmund Hall, from here we travel through a series of small streets, stopping every 100 foot steps to experience the particular confined aura along our journey.
Upon reaching the midpoint we find ourselves behind the Church of St Mary the Virgin, the center from which the University of Oxford grew. Continuing Through the alleys we cross what is now the high street of Oxford and the center of modernity for this small city. Our journey ends at the Oxford Mission Church, where the night alleys end and we once again realign ourselves with the modern Oxford.
