Another England Unseen

(Work in Progress)

Another England is an unpublished body of work produced between 1995 and 2000 exploring English Calendar Customs.

After a break of 20 years I am revisiting the work and incorportating a range of archive materials and artifacts alongside the original images to expolore the process of documentation in the context of the wider visual representation of these events.

This work is part of my contribution to the Centre for Contemporary Legend at Sheffield Hallam University.
