Prior to reading Edgelands by Farley & Symmons Roberts (2011), I would have returned from a canal trip with a few photos of friends and the places we were able to moor alongside. However, the classification of the 'edgelands' has really caught my imagination.
Technology has made it all too easy to capture and replicate 'works of art'. Many photographers go to great lengths to watermark or doctor their images to lower resolutions, so that they can't be used. However, with billions of images uploaded to the Internet everyday, there is a wealth of material just waiting to be appropriated.
