Bartlett’s People – Part I

Bartlet’s People – Part I is the first part of an ongoing research project into ruins and the tourist and pleasure cultures which surround them. Taking as starting point William Henry Bartlett’s engravings of ruins which were taken as portfolios and used as tourist guides by many visitors to Italy in the 19th century, the work seeks to figure the remnants of this heritage as a disappearing spectral subject and offer critique and counterpoint for the awe and grand spectacles of the sublime as ruin as begun by Bartlett.
