Upon a Fathers Back is a project set in the mountainous landscape of North Wales.
As part of the Snowdonia National park, this corner of wales is a popular place for walking, mountain biking and other out door recreational activities. But where the heart of the place truly lies, is within the hidden walks and paths which are only known by the locals, and evade the tourist trap. These walks have been written down by my grandfather who took my father, uncles and aunts to a white cottage where they spent every holiday, deep in the mountains. Eventually the walks and paths got passed down to me and my other siblings.This level of heritage and bloodline runs deep within my family, its a place which is rich in personal history and nostalgia. The edit complies of photographs taken by myself and my great uncle, who spent many of his years as a boy photographing and painting the scenery. This project is very much in its infancy, in time it will comply of an archival edit, as well as paintings from members of my family who have documented this place of the world for the past 70 years.
