The Journey to Work by Dominic Pote

The theme 'Journey to Work' was chosen as a starting point for this commission because it was something common to all staff. Dominic worked with staff from the Speech and Language Therapy, Laser Clinic and Medical Photography departments capturing on film favourite views they encountered on their way to work.

'The photographs represent not only different journeys into Salisbury, but also the main variations of the Wiltshire landscape; woodland, agricultural land, the plains and river scenes.' (Dominic Pote)

Dominic's panoramic images are generated using a custom-adapted film camera. He moves the camera gently through the landscape in a single extended shot. 'Since movement is intrinsic to my work, the theme of journey seemed very appropriate. I wanted to capture the feeling of passing through the landscape whilst also retaining some details, mimicking the way in which we experience travelling. The bridge, for example, in Little Durnford is captured as if glimpsed through the trees, a frozen moment stolen from the flow of time.'

The six photographs can be found on Level 3 of the new build within the three departments Dominic worked with. The images in the Speech and Language Therapy department are accompanied by short poems written by patients during workshops with poet-in-residence Rose Flint.
