My photos BIG!!!

By ade_mcfade      
Here's a few action shots of my work being installed at Wira Business Park in Leeds - this is a 50 by 70 inch photo of a shot of Leeds University, printed on high grade 5mm plastic by a 250K printer.

There were 13 this size, 19 bigger and quite a lot of 50 by 30 inch shots.

Seeing all that lot laid out in an office is quite an experience.

They look a lot more impressive this size than on the computer screen you're looking at right now Wink

yeh - very chuffed

the guy with the level is Phil, we're working together on getting images like these all over Yorkshire now - bespoke, or from the McFade archives.

Can't wait for the next job.

The client was completely blown away by the shots - don't think any of us really knew what 50 by 75 inches looked like, we measured the spaces so knew they'd fit, but when you see them printed and installed... yeah, cool

Aah go on, you big show off. You just want to laud it over us who haven't got an exhibition. Sad

Nice one Ade. I hope it's a big success.

I might have missed the answer, can anyone view these or are they in a private location?

This isn't an exhibition - well they are on show I guess - but they bought the shots off us to enhance the environment of the business park. They've used one of my shots of Allders (Now Broadgate) on the Headrow in Leeds as part of their publicity campaign too. I'm going up to the balcony high above the headrow on Monday to photograph the city - a thankyou from the company really Smile


They are at WIRA Business Park, which is on the ring road in Lawnswood in Leeds - basically go out of town through headingley and turn left at Lawnswood Roundabout, it's down there.

Can you get in??

Not sure, but if someone was really keen to see them I could organise something, I know the site manager Mark pretty well now Smile

Nothing quite so impressive than your work in very large prints and hung properly, congratulations Ade, you deserve it.
