A New Initiative for Canterbury

A few shots from a @CanterburyNewSchool shoot in May.

The lovely Canterbury New School, recently founded on the Waldorf principles, asked me to capture some of the school atmosphere for their new website. I’m very happy to share the kids’ shots used by the school plus a few details.

King’s Wood revisited

Mrs E-B was back at King’s Wood for her second and final residency; in fact it was the very last residency as Stour Valley Arts sadly lost its funding. So we wanted to make the most of it.

The mid-March weather was better than we could have hoped for and after a great afternoon exploring the woods we were just settling down for supper when there came a knock at the window (scarier than you think in a lonely cabin!). The Friends of King’s Wood were inviting us to come and count newts in the ponds tucked away in the woods deepest secret places! Not everyone’s idea of a crazy Saturday night but it was certainly wild – we saw deer, newts, frogs and had a mad Land Rover ride.

Sunday morning brought the buzzing of wood-working and we introduced ourselves to Justin and Josh, the fence-making guys in the adjacent wood-yard. Second and third generation fence men, respectively, they’re processing an important by-product of the forestry taking place throughout Kings Wood, and exporting it across Europe.
