From September 11-18, 2011, seven photographers set up shop in the small village of Langthwaite on the banks of the Arkle Beck in the north of England. Working closely with the Swaledale Museum in the nearby market town of Reeth, a series of activities and ideas were devised for for exploring, experiencing, and photographing aspects of the region.
A series of blog entries written in the field are archived below, including a number of videos and still photographs. The project culminated in a small exhibition at the Swaledale Museum. It is hoped that this Initiative will continue in the future, perhaps growing to involve some of the other communities in the Dales, for longer durations of time. Cheers!
