Shadows of the North Book now printed!
29th November 2015
And so after 12 months of exhibitions, I am excited to announce that I have (belatedly!) published a book to accompany the Shadows of the North exhibition, which is due to finish at Queen Street Textile Museum in Burnley shortly.
Like the exhibition, the book is a wander through the battered and broken remains of the textile mills of Lancashire and West Yorkshire, as well as the surrounding landscape. David Plowden, one of my photographic inspirations, referred to his habit of being 'one step ahead of the wrecking ball', and to a large extent, this is something I also have the knack of, albeit with varying degrees of success.
The book is 70 pages in length and is exclusively black and white which may come as no surprise if you are familiar with my work. I have limited numbers of books available in this initial batch of printed books, and I will order more if / when these sell out. Given the somewhat expensive prices charged by Blurb, I tend only to order any books from them when there is either a 40 or 50% off offer on, so any future batch will be sometime next year at the earliest.
Alternatively, if you are a millennial and shun printed matter (or live outside the UK), I have the book available as a downloadable PDF for £4.99. Be warned, it is a very large document! For a preview, please have a look at the 20 page preview PDF also on the store.
The price for shipping the paperback book is for the UK, please contact me if you are outside the UK.
