This does pretty much what it says on the tin… photographs of baths in the landscape with views.
Anyone who walks in the countryside will be familiar with old cast-iron baths being upcycled into watering troughs for animals. They have been used like this for decades, tucked under hedges, behind walls and occasionally positioned more scenically in the landscape. While the very practical if slightly surreal practice of re-using old baths is still relatively common, particularly in upland livestock farming areas, it does seem that the baths are being rapidly replaced by the rather boring but presumably more efficient galvanised steel and plastic tanks.
I have been photographing baths as I come across them on my travels around Britain over the last couple of years and have a collection of images I believe worth sharing with a wider world.
This hardback book has a simple introductory text and is full colour throughout. 138 pages in total, size approx 15 x 21cm and costs £13.90.
Baths with Views is now published in a first run of 50 copies. It is available from Blossom Street Gallery, York, on Amazon or from me of course… email me.
