This is a little teaser from a new body of work for BFP2. Its an event called the Blue Ribbon 'Obby 'Oss festival which I shot a few months ago. I was lucky enough to be granted permission witness this extraordinary event, the work will feature in the second book, BFP2 which will be out later this year.

Ok, so, 'British Folk Part One' is very nearly finished. BFP1 is part of a trilogy of books that Im doing on British folk. The book looks at the darker and more surreal side of folk events and customs in Britain. BFP1 consists purely of photographs in a 32page, perfect bound, litho printed on Muncken Lynx paper with a hand bound ribbon spine. Its designed by Ben Freeman, of Ditto Press and the back illustration is by Roisin Dunne. The book is a limited edition of 250 copies.
There will be a book launch at the end of the month, details are to follow shortly. So far the book will be stocked at Motto Books in Berlin, The KK Outlet and Concrete Hermit in London, and the Inventory shop in Vancouver, Canada. More shops are to be confirmed. The book will also be available to order online on my website by the end of the month.
