"These photos were never meant for a book. 

They were taken as snapshots for family & friends because I like to snap. I snap weekly, sometimes daily without any conscious path or narrative. Random moments of our day to day in a time of quarantines & lockdowns.

My father loved taking photos & as long as I can remember there’s been some kind of camera close by. Film in those days, proper camera or toy, it didn’t matter. Just freezing time for tomorrow. 

It got more serious once kids arrived. Film became somewhat impractical when our boys started picking up cameras to snapsnapsnapsnap... digital is now a new best friend. 

The book starts close to the first official week of UK lockdown. We live & work in the heart of rural Wales on six elevated acres between our narrow farm road & a small working railroad line. 

As a family we’ve had twenty years of practice being in close quarters for long stretches of time. Buck & Stan were until recently home-schooled. Jacquie, along with educating the boys, works from home most of the time & I work from home all of the time. Also during lockdown, Jacquie built a raised garden & started growing our veggies. 

I mix music. That’s the day job & happily in the modern world computers allow us to do all our respective work from here. From our home.

Today this home includes two beautiful but conformationally challenged & unrideable horses. 

The big guy is Beans, the little guy is Sonny. There are two orphaned sheep, Texas & Louisiana or Tex & LouLou, two dogs, lumbering Hank & coquettish Suka, plus the cool cats, Slinky & Dasia.

During the plague I completely divested myself from social media & created a website regularly uploading these snaps to a private family & friends page where they seemed to strike a positive chord & even inspired a series of nine homemade music videos which led to the music being released as an album, which led to the idea for this book of snaps."
