This is Paddy near the A65, Skipton, North Yorkshire. Thank you to The British Journal of photography @bjp1854 for shortlisting this image for a Portrait of Humanity. I first met Paddy bathing in a stream, in the heat of summer surrounded by the vast landscape of the Yorkshire Moors. Horses grazing, the remains of a camp fire, a family appearing from a wagons bustling about, I stopped in my tracks as I thought I’d stumbled across an age gone by. They were on their way to Appleby Fair in Cumbria, this fair is a historic annual gathering for travellers and gypsies. This event is an important tradition for communities and this year as a result of Covid-19 it will not be taking place. Since meeting Paddy I then began a project documenting the lives of young people in the rural north and exploring the fragile but beautiful nature of rurality.
