Norfolk Libraries | Pre Covid19 Shoot

Another pre Covid19 shoot! Timed just before the outbreak. I was given the brief to travel around the county of Norfolk From Kings Lynn to Great Yarmouth, documenting some of the marvellous facilities and activities at Norfolk Libraries.
Meeting everyone from bouncing babies, expectant mothers, passionate musicians to knitting groups.

Here are a few images from the first shoot.

The Storytellers….

Telling stories is a real art – I mean the folks that call themselves the storytellers, really can bring to life stories that have been passed through generations.

Through my work I’ve been fortunate enough to hear some of the wonderful old and romantic stories.
Last week I had the pleasure of photographing two storytellers, Hugh Lupton and Taffy Thomas, two of the better known artists of their craft. I carefully moved around, shooting images while listening intently to theirwonderful and creative narratives.

Previously I had worked for BBC Countryfile, shooting images of presenter Katie Knapman who was on a storytelling course in Essex – this was also great fun, using a wonderfully ornate tipie, storyteller Paul Jackson lit the fire and held the listeners with his creative and moving stories.
