These Faces : Scotland, England, France, Spain
These Faces is a book of encounters. The background to these encounters is Tim Neat's lifetime's work as a filmmaker, writer, researcher and storyteller in which he has followed the lives of individuals and communities normally qualified as marginal: tinkers, small time fishermen, shepherds, bards, costermongers; travelling people from the Highlands, the Scottish islands; workers in Yorkshire, villagers in Andalucia, poets. The book will contain more than 150 monochrome photographs reproduced from the highest quality prints by master-printer Robin Bell. The book is introduced by John Berger, with whom Neat has worked recurrently since 1978, most recently in Avignon, July 2012. Neat himself will caption and contextualise the photographs, and a number of short poems will give 'space and measure' to the images.
