'It's the Land, it is our wisdom; it's the Land, it shines us through. It's the Land, it feeds our children; It's the Land, you cannot own the Land - The Land owns you' - Solid Ground, Dougie Maclean
A new project for 2019
A couple of visits to family in Co Tipperary, Ireland, in November 2017 and August 2018 sparked my interest to document life on their dairy farm of approx. 70 cows under the shadow of the wonderful Comeragh Mountains. This then led me to compare their way of farming life to that of Geoff and Alan Midgley who, together with Geoff's son Jon, run a similar sized dairy herd - and from where our milk is delivered! - across the Valley to where I live near Luddenden in the South Pennines of West Yorkshire.
It is my hope to follow the farms through the year and compare their routines and developments with Brexit now a reality.
The camera is my Nikon F4 using Ilford HP5 and Delta 100 film.
