The second edition of Shadows of the North is now available from my online store here http://mechanicallandscapes.selz.com
As before, 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 second edition of the book is over 90 pages in length and is exclusively black and white which may come as no surprise if you are familiar with my work. I’ve comprehensively reworked the book, added new photos and restructured it to produce a worthy successor to the first edition.
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
*Truth be told, I did have plans for a Mechanical Landscapes book earlier in the year, and even have a print ready PDF, but everything that could possibly go wrong did do, so I took it as a sign that the universe was telling me that I wasn’t ready yet!
