Burn the Salt Wick
Artist Book - [Book Design & Concept]

A journey of reflection through layers of a daily descent and ascent of my favourite place in the world Saltwick Bay, North Yorkshire.

Burn the Salt Wick born from a poem is a book exploring one piticular day at Saltwick Bay. Each photo explores and documents different levels of the days journey onto the coastline focusing on the meditative quality the surrounding has upon me. What happen when your are engulfed by your setting, you become one within the landscape.

As well as photography included throughout are detailed illustrations showing the geology of the coast underfoot.
