I.A.Recordings is a small group of volunteers documenting past and present industrial activity using high definition video and photography.
If possible, we'll record people and processes while they're still working - moving pictures are vital for that, but they also add an extra dimension to industrial remains and the techniques used in old crafts and trades.
