I recently received an upsetting phone call from walk The Plank, to tell me that a section of their newly built HQ in Salford had been badly damaged by fire. I was invited down to take some photographs of the aftermath after one of the owners, John Wassell, decided that this moment in the history of WTP needed recording. As I’d photographed the process of the building’s construction it seemed appropriate for me to take the pictures. John also saw the bizarre beauty in melted chaos caused by the intense heat.
Being WTP they immediately have set about surviving the fire, and have somehow still managed to deliver the commissioned shows. No doubt they will need support over the coming months, so perhaps sign up for their news letter via the website, or follow them on Twitter to keep up to date with any requests.
Below is a gallery of pictures from the fire damaged unit.
