Blacksmith James Price forging on a power hammer

New Blacksmiths forge photos

I recently collaborated with a gentleman called John Brockliss on the Fishermans Quay gates , John was involved in colour and typographical consultation and I was delighted when he asked if he could take some photographs of this project being made. John is a keen and highly skilled photographer with an amazing eye for composition, the blacksmiths forge photos shown here were all sot on a handheld Leica with no artificial light. I love the depth and muted palate, they really capture the grit and glamour of my working day.
