The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
I have not heard of him before either but there are some wonderful photos on the two sites.BTW the first link needs amending slightly, it doesn't link direct without a bit of figuring out.
Glad you like his work too. It truly is amazing. Thanks for pointing out the cocked up link!
Yes it is amazing work, it has made me think of another photographer whose work I know you would like. I shall look up the links and do a post!
I look forward to seeing the post Cherie
Thanks for the info on James Ravilious, jams! Sorry you hurt your knee. I hope it gets better.
It was beyond photography. It was like a sketch.Really good work.
Glad you like it Mary. My knee is on the mend but it still hurts and my mobility is limited!His work is utterly superb eh Ren?
That BBC Four has some good stuff on it :)
It certainly does Pisces
In case you're around the South Bank at all in April/May, the National Theatre is showing some of James's prints: http://www.nationaltheatre.org.uk/42889/exhibitions/james-ravilious-an-english-eye.html
Fascinating, especially as I "know" this area... hardly at all apparently...
His work was amazing wasn't it?
