Ryvita Life With Photography®
The lives of others whether it be on the street or, in this case, in a factory, is a fascination, as is industrial photography.
I grasped an opportunity to combine it all in the creation of Ryvita Life, after a chance meeting with the Site General Manager in 2015.
The factory is based in Poole, Dorset, very near to where I now live. The original factory in Birmingham was bombed during the 2nd World War.
Combining the worlds of manufacturing and photography in a contemporary way was a challenge. The circumstances and environment varied as much as the decisive moments I wanted to capture and they were often far apart — the site is vast. Life at the factory just carried on around me and there wasn’t a lot of time for deliberation!
The result is a fascinating photographic documentary of a highly successful UK business that is steeped in history yet continues to innovate in a highly competitive market.
