‘Seasons on the Hill Farm’ is a fascinating book, a photographic record of the farming year of Swaledale sheep breeders, the Calvert Family, who live and work in Birkdale, the most northerly dale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
David Ian Short is a well-known local photographer based in Richmond, who runs the Richmond Station Photography Groups for beginners and experts. Ian has exhibited at Richmond Station, Scottish Natural Heritage in Perth, and the Joe Cornish Gallery in Northallerton. He has previously completed photographic projects with the Alvie estate in Aviemore and has run photographic holidays in Scotland.
Ian’s background is in teaching and, as a geographer, he brings a wealth of knowledge about the area which is inter-weaved into his narrative. Ian’s love for the Dale comes through in his distinctive and engaging text, which accompanies his photographs.
