3 new pictures for new June issue Harpers. Alice Temperley and her gang, Michael and Emily Eavis and Charles Hazelwood at Glastonbury Abbey.

Well.. the house is sold. Or more importantly for this purpose, the field below. It’s a place I have known for nearly fifty years and over the last month, while clearing out my mother’s things I have been down to the river in the evenings to take pictures. The plan has been to rephotograph the […]
