Designers and DesignsThe artisan industry is growing. Crafters and makers are attracting consumers who desire something bespoke and personal. The makers that I am photographing deliver objects with charm and special value. Designers and designs aims to promote not only my photography but the hand makers and designers themselves. I have seen a change in my local area due to a surge of independent creative businesses. This has brought our rich creative heritage back into modern life and is spurring life back into our struggling high streets. This is the root of my project, I believe in collaborative practice. If I can exchange their time but give them a useful resource for commercial promotion, it makes this project bigger than myself as a photographer.
