Collated Observations is a series of regular photozines showcasing aspects of modern life through the lens of a different UK-based photographer each issue.

Volume eleven features the work of Birmingham based photographer Jay Mason-Burns. An urban wanderer, he captures images that reflect his emotional reaction to what he finds, exploring themes of dereliction, obsolescence and forgetfulness.

Corridors of Uncertainty

"I grew up in a Birmingham that was designed around the driving optimism of 1960s road expansion. Whilst traffic thundered over soaring flyovers, pedestrians were diverted beneath. The city was a subway, where markets, pubs and clubs existed in a subterranean world that became ingrained into Brummie DNA. Despite its many flaws ‘Subway Brum’ was a visceral place, full of noise, smells and a strange concrete beauty.

These places feel disconnected, suspended between shadows and light, like a concrete purgatory. Lack of maintenance has left these spaces problematic, the dangerous and the dissolute now haunt these corridors of uncertainty. But look a little closer, street art fearlessly lights the way whilst skateboarders skim and
parkour athletes jump and prance. Humanity can still be found here."
