Union Street, Plymouth Documentary Photography Project

This is a personal documentary photography project of Plymouth’s historic but decaying Union Street. A place of former greatness, now neglected and sad but showing glimmers of its former glamour. I am fascinated by the old buildings which survived the bombings of the 2nd World War but have been left to rot. Union Street, Plymouth is currently changing with work being done to the New Palace Theatre throughout 2016.

The street must hold memories of many good nights out for several generations of Plymothians and visiting service people. My favourite building in Plymouth is the old “New Palace Theatre”, more recently known as the “Dance Academy”. A magnificent building with a million stories!

Abandoned Theatre

I was lucky enough to photograph inside the New Palace Theatre in January 2016, during the early stages of the renovation by the Go palace charity.

The inside of the building evokes memories of when it was the “Dance Academy” nightclub in the 1990s and early 2000s but mostly of an abandoned theatre with many grand features and endless stories.
