One Woman Farm
In breathtakingly emotive photographs, Alison O'Neill, The Shepherdess, is intimately revealed as the custodian of a cherished Dales hill farm, tackling and embracing the challenges in her path through the year’s progress. Her enduring pleasure of nurturing her flock, revelling in the beauty that surrounds her and marvelling at how nature rewards her toil, flows out of every large format artwork. Ian Lawson's tough and tender portraits show a remarkable woman living a ‘real-life’ who has struggled, done without and worked so very hard to survive on her tenanted farm. A once in a lifetime book full of truths, tears and lots of triumphs to top all other tales of woe.
