Artisans

Artisans – The essence of creativity and invention.

This is an ongoing project and to complete it I now need to travel around the country to capture the crafts people in their workplace. The scope of this project is huge and can take you back to Stone, Iron and Bronze age crafts through Roman and Tudor times. Funding is required for research and travel to shoot the Artisans in their workplace.

Artisans express themselves through inventiveness and creation, turning inner thoughts and feelings into things that can be perceived and enjoyed by others. Perceiving alternative ways of constructing reality they seek to make real their ideas in interesting and tangible forms, just as light produces a spectrum of colours; Artisans develop their own perspective and experiences into a wide range of products. For most of our history, making things by hand was the norm, and the skills were passed from one generation to the next. In this digital age, when so many spend their days in front of a computer screen, the thrill and sense of satisfaction in taking time to make something yourself is that much more important. Through the use of simple tools, their hands and a fertile imagination, spending much time in their vivid inner world, they create either works of art or utilitarian products with a wide variety of natural media.

To date I have produced 20 images of artisans: including glass blowers, gunsmith, potter, spinner, weaver etc. It is my intention to travel the country to records crafts people at work, capturing their creativity in their own environment. This is designed to record crafts that may well disappear in the future.

The funding support I seek is required to expand the Artisan project, shooting crafts people in their work environment. The money will be used for research and travel to shoot the Artisans around the country, enabling me to photograph crafts that may well disappear over time. Please explore the web links in my photographer bio for more insight into my work and current project. Thank you for considering my campaign however if you feel this is not for you at this point in time then please help me by sharing this post on-line.

Thank You,
