Chris Griffin

A volunteer at Diffusion Festival and West Wharf allowed me to photograph some of Chris Griffin’s work from when he was studying at the Royal College of Art around 1945. Griffin has superimposed x-rays of industrial worker’s lungs over photographs of the workers and of landscapes, creating abstract images. At this point in his education Griffin’s wok was social commentary with an interest in capturing the effects of mining on South Wales however the results are something that combines abstract details with urban landscape in a similar way to Prunella Clough. Griffin’s work also has a feel of being a collage, something that has influenced my practice.
