Zine Details

The twenty-four-page magazine has a total of nineteen images taken in Norfolk in 2016. The photographs were taken during a final family holiday with my mother that year.

The images conclude a trilogy of mobile-based photography shot in the English county over a number of years starting in 2009.

Norfolk Photozine Release Next Week

By |2019-07-01T22:42:12+01:00July 1st, 2019|Categories: News|Tags: , , , , , , |

After a delay due to ill health, I’m pleased to announce that the photo zine ‘Caught by the Tide’ will be released next week.

The Zine

The 24-page photo zine will contain nineteen images shot in Norfolk during a week-long visit in September 2016. Sadly the trip was to give my terminally ill mother a final family holiday. Shooting the images provided a small amount of escape.

Most of the recent work has been focussed around the text and setting the right tone for the zine. The images were taken during a very tough year, both emotionally and mentally and the text needs to reflect that period without being too gloomy. Not easy given the circumstances.

Finishing Touches

So this week will see the finishing touches made to the text before the zine is sent off. A web page will then be added to the website so that ‘Caught by the Tide’ can be purchased. More details about the price and where to purchase the zine will follow.

Zine Podcast

After release I’ll be recording a podcast about the zine and the photographs that will be released later this month.

New Edinburgh Photos for Book

The Piper’s Audience – Lawnmarket, Edinburgh

The final images for the Seven Hills book were shot during a visit to a very wet Edinburgh in early April. I got wet and the camera got very wet too. A worrying moment was had when a bit of water poured out of the front of my 35mm lens. Fortunately, it was water from the front of the filter rather than inside the lens. The rain just added that extra challenge.

The street photography images shot that day fill in a few gaps with regard to geography and subject matter. Overall I’m rather pleased with what I got during my short time there. The level of tourists meant that I could work pretty much without being noticed. Everyone had a camera! The only concern was making sure the camera and lens were dried regularly.

A favourite shot from the day is The Piper’s Audience taken along the Royal Mile at Lawnmarket. I’d taken some shots earlier but found them unusable due to rainwater on the filter. After removing the filter I went back a couple of minutes later to grab the image seen above. The line of people, most of whom seem to be taking or checking a photograph, tell their own story.

The book now goes into the final stages of adding and editing text. I am tempted to slightly delay the release of the book until November. This new date would fit in easier with work plans plus it would also mark four years since the book’s first images were shot in November 2015.

Upcoming Norfolk Photozine

Book Updates

Last month I mentioned two new books that are currently in the works. Progress has continued regarding the images added to Edinburgh: Seven Hills which now includes several images shot in 2015. A final set of images will be shot on the next visit to Edinburgh in April.

The photographs for The Two Towns are in place and only the text for the introduction is required. After some work put in over the weekend, the image credits have been added for the majority of the images. Cover art has also been completed and I’m very happy with how the book is looking.

Norfolk Photo Zine

As a result of the new book designs, a new photo zine has been added to the current new book design list.

Using the working title of ‘Caught by the Tide’ the photo zine will contain nineteen photographs shot during a quickly arranged week-long trip to the county of Norfolk. The visit was a final holiday for my mother after her terminal cancer diagnosis earlier that summer. The title reflects the feeling at the time of being swept along with no power over events.

The zine images are in place and all that now remains is the text for the introduction and image credits. The photo zine marks the third and final book to contain iPhone photography take over the last four years. I’ll be talking more about the zine in the upcoming March podcast.

Release Dates

The photo zine will be released in the next couple of months. The release dates for the other two books remain mid and late summer 2019.
