“The dream was always to find the unknown. That glimpse of purity in an ever-modernizing world. A place of pristine nature,
cultural richness, and people pure of heart. I went on a journey of discovery and it was worth it.”
I have romantic, old-fashioned views about the landscapes I photograph… I love to see people going about their time-served ways, I like to hear what they have to say, what they feel and experience in their lives and most importantly, what the place means to them. This is, in essence, what Herdwick is all about.’
