River Axe Crossings: A Visual Survey Along the Course of the River 2008

riveraxe River Axe Crossings:
A Visual Survey Along the Course of the River
2008

The River Axe flows through Dorset, Somerset and Devon, rising near Beaminster, flowing west then south by Axminster and joining the English Channel at Axmouth near Seaton. During its thirty-five kilometer course it is fed by various streams and by the tributary rivers Yarty and Coly. The photographs look directly upstream and downstream from the center of each of all the forty-one extant crossings, ranging variously from plain wooden beam, to stone arch, to concrete road bridge; excluded are weirs, railway bridges, and crossings by ford or stepping stones. From the front of the book the right-hand page sequence shows the direction from mouth to source, while from the back the left-hand sequence is downstream with the river’s flow.

About sense of place in artist books

I am an artist. I find the ephemeral place in my art conjured up through practice. I sift through raw materials with my hopes and dreams, and ideas take form as if intended.
