The Scroll, part 1

PHOTOGRAPHER'S JOURNAL:  It's been a few years since I last photographed Will Trowbridge in his shop, and my visit last Wednesday coincided with work he was doing on a commission for a window grate.  It was an ideal task to photograph as it required making a number of identical pieces which allowed me to familiarize myself with the process and then explore all the likely angles and compositions.  

Work begins at the tip where the metal is most delicate and where Will delicately forms a bit of a hook.
