Architectural photography of the Jersey Energy From Waste Facility by the magnificent Hopkins Architects: definitely one of my favourite schemes to photograph so far. Jersey is stunning, and this ballsy, powerful, high-tech industrial piece of architecture makes a fantastic addition to the island. The hall is one of the most impressive spaces I have seen, and would make a great restaurant… Not only beautiful, this building makes a significant, positive environmental impact by burning waste produced not only by Jersey but also by neighbouring Guernsey, and cleanly converting it into energy.
I used a large format camera, the Toyo VX125b, Rodenstock 135mm f 5.6 Apo-Sironar-S, Schneider 72mm f/5.6 Super-Angulon XL, Rodenstock 210mm f 5.6 Apo-Sironar-S lenses. The film was Fuji 160NS in 4×5”.
Some of these photographs were featured in the new Hopkins Architects monograph, Hopkins 3.
