HEAD STUDIES represents the work Albie produced as Artist in Residence at Edinburgh College in 2013-14. HEAD STUDIES is a studio-based still life project using a glass mannequin head, expired film, continuous lighting, and large and medium-format cameras to produce a series of abstract portraits.

All images were developed, processed and printed at Edinburgh College's Granton and Sighthill campuses.

"This project is a celebration of expired film as a format, using its occasional imperfections and idiosyncrasies to demonstrate how it's still relevant to my own photographic practice. There are no digital post-processing techniques – besides scanning in the negatives – applied to any of these images; everything was done naturally in the studio and processed in house, as it were."
