2022 turned more of my attention again to photographic projects, and I expanded the “ten years on” project to include both Laxey and Port Erin. It’s very rewarding work and of very contrasting kinds of work. This ranges from a full-on week of fieldwork meeting hundreds of people and persuading them to take part, followed by weeks more of office based photo processing and incorporating into the website. This is all preceded by work to gain funding for the project spanning many months, and succeeded by work to publicise the results. Then a sigh of relief before starting all over again. Can I get Port St Mary on board for the ten years on treatment this year?
