A story of mine has been featured as the first in a series called ‘Good Work’ on Rear Curtain. Rear Curtain is a great platform for emerging visual storytellers and I’m delighted to be involved with it. The series ‘Good Work’ shines a light on jobs that are often under peoples radar. My series on Celtic Horse Logging features the work of the Lenihan family in Scotland who have been logging with heavy horses for generations, these men experts of this dwindling tradition. My photography has often focused on the environment and our connection to it, whether positive or negative. This form of logging is more environmentally friendly and selective than logging by industrial machinery and therefore much gentler on the environment. If we must keep felling trees then we should be championing the use of heavy horses to do it.
