I’ve been working on this story on Britain’s railway enthusiasts for a while. At first I think I was working on this piece because of the novelty value of working with such a fantastic community, but the more I work on this the more I become overwhelmed with what the community is actually interested in: a way of looking at Britain’s history. This is something that I need to do a lot of research on, but I thought I’d share a couple of snippets of what I’ve been photographing recently…

  3. @ Uta – thankyou so much – that’s possibly the nicest thing that anyone has ever said to me about my photos! This will be a essay don’t worry, I’m getting really carried away on this story…the people really make it worthwhile in so many ways…

    @ Roman – Thanks mate! I’ll be posting up something larger in the next couple of months once I’ve done some further delving and digging. I’ll keep you posted. Hope all’s well in NY and everything Camayak is going swimmingly…
