2/10/14 / new print / RIP MPV


This Toyota Previa was abandoned on Ovenden Moor a few weeks back - and it seemingly wasn't long before it was sent to the great junkyard in the sky. It's only 100 yards from where I took 'Death Of A Salesvan' six months previously, and the presence of a helicopter overhead for the ten minutes I was shooting suggests it is still under scrutiny.

I get *so* much enjoyment out of taking shots like this. Most landscape photography does nothing for me: see something 'beautiful' (sunrise/sunset/waterfall), compose beautiful shot, enhance beauty in Photoshop, publish beautiful pic, sit back and lap up the praise. Where's the fun in that?

Limited edition of 50 prints, available to buy here. Mounted prints will be available at Heart Gallery in Hebden Bridge from November.
