A Stone’s Throw | Tintype styled landscape and still-life photography.

This photography project uses a coloured tintype visual style and explores local roads and fields. All of the images were shot within two miles of my former home in North Yorkshire.

Close to Home

Several of the images include locations that, though very close to home, I’d never visited before even though I’d lived in that area for over 35 years.

The phrase ‘a stone’s throw‘ refers to the short distances involved.

Tintype Process

The tintype photo process, also known as a melainotype or ferrotype, dates back to the Victorian era, being at its most popular during the 1860s and 1870s.

The original Victorian process used several highly toxic ingredients including potassium cyanide as a fixer. These images were, however, taken using an iPhone and the Hipstamatic photography app.

The Maypole

THE MAYPOLE | Photographs set around a Maypole located in the North Yorkshire village of Slingsby.

Maypoles were traced to prehistoric times when the Tree Spirit was worshipped (Sir James George Frazer in his book ‘The Golden Bough‘). People danced around the poles but did not plait them.

Today, the tradition is still observed in some parts of Europe and among European communities in North America.

Maypole History

The Maypole tradition hasn’t always met with approval.

The Long Parliament’s ordinance of 1644 described maypoles as “a Heathenish vanity, generally abused to superstition and wickedness.”

When Charles II took the throne in 1660 Maypole dancing came back after the crackdown during the Cromwell era.

Slingsby’s maypole history goes back a great many years. The current Slingsby Maypole was erected in 1993. It is used each year for village May Day celebrations attracting big crowds.

A YouTube video of the 1985 Maypole raising can be found on the Slingsby village website.

SCOTLAND: Lowlands, Highlands and Islands | Landscape and Documentary Photography

This landscape and documentary photography project follows a number of locations and routes through Scotland. The area covers runs from the borders through to the highlands and the Hebrides.

The first trip created a relationship with Scotland that will last all my life. The diversity and beauty of the country never fail to amaze me. I feel so at home when I’m amongst the mountains and lochs of the Highlands.

Much like the Norfolk project, this is a photography project with no end date. I imagine that it will be a ‘work in progress’ until the time I can no longer physically continue to take images.

Highlands and Skye

The scope of photography is huge. So far the images cover mostly a narrow area of the Highlands and Skye, but the plan is to add more areas in the future.

Fortunately, the Scottish Borders are around an hour’s drive from where I live. The opportunity to regularly continue photography in southern Scotland is there.

The northern areas also include plenty of potential too. The Outer Hebrides is one area of interest for future project development. It’s going to be a great project to contribute to over the coming years.

The photography comes from a mix of mediums including mobile photography. Instagram has been especially useful for showing images as journeys have progressed. The Two Towns and Seven Hills photography are offshoots of this project looking at the city of Edinburgh.

Future plans include the development of a number of photography books, large format photography, multimedia and more.

Photography Book

Work is currently well under-way on the first photography book. This will bring together photography from four trips to the Highlands of Scotland and Skye.
