This image was shot in a pub that my family used to drink at a lot between the late 70s to the early 90s when it got shut down. most of my earliest memories of childhood where in this pub until it got shut down when I was 6 almost 16 years ago. I always wanted to go back in there and do some kind of shoot but had no idea A how to go about getting in and B what I can photograph that would do the place justice. I wanted this image to show the decay and brokenness of the place along with my memories. I decided in my edits to give this a post apocalyptic look with fake smoke. I also made it look dream like, with the darkened edges and the warped beams. it was my models idea to wear the gas mask and be naked in the picture which really inspired me on how I wanted it to look.
