My theme from a City & Guilds project in 2007, although the other 25 gas stations have yet to be photographed…

Reason for the project, as the world starts shifting to electric, then these are going to fade and disappear from collective memories.

View the book by Edward Ruscha ‘Twentysix Gasoline Stations’ 1963 – the inspiration behind this project: https://www.tate.org.uk/about-us/projects/transforming-artist-books/summaries/edward-ruscha-twentysix-gasoline-stations-1963

Now, all I need to do is complete the project and continue photographing gas stations around Wales. I’ll do this, and post the images here as they get done.
