January 2013

Pigeon Weekending – was shot at the British Homing World Show of the Year, the two-day gathering of pigeon fanciers held in Blackpool, each January. Three sets of portraits, shot over the course of a weekend are studies of the faces behind this age-old traditional pastime. Being a Sandgronian (someone from Blackpool) I grew up aware of Pigeon Weekend and the difference it made to this seaside town in the depths of winter. However, I never really knew what it was about, who took part in such an event and of course, why?
