Lesney’s Ghosts refers to reflections seen in The River Lee Navigation and Hackney Cut, Hackney, East London.
Lesney’s Matchbox Toys Factory was finally demolished in 2010 to make way for a colourful apartment complex, Matchmakers Wharf, the source of many of the images. The video is edited from hundreds of abstract photographs taken within a mile of the site, over 3 years.
Commissioned by Steven McInerney for the launch of Psychè Tropes Record Label 2014, as a soundless movie for performance with a live soundtrack played by Dave Draper.
Doffy Weir, a photographer, has lived in Hackney for 40 years and has a passion for taking abstract and ambiguous photographs of industrial dereliction, and waterways in the east of London. She now edits her obsessional collection into videos.
