Title: Our Old Mill

Walking around our dilapidated, yet historic, old mill I was wondering how on earth it has been left to decay to the state it is today. I was looking for a different angle of the mill and took quite a few images of different viewpoints and came across this view which is directly looking up from one of the corners. I thought it looked more dramatic in Black and White as it was quite a grey day and that combination speaks to its current state. Hopefully sometime soon good things will start to happen with our mill, the whole of Belper has its fingers crossed.

Artist Bio:

I have been the joint organiser of The Belper Arts Trail for the last 10 years, and the Trail has grown in popularity and scope in that time. I also curated The Cherry Orchard pop-up gallery on the Market Place in Belper, where showcasing the works of local artists was my primary aim.


I love illustration, and I am a big fan of comics, anime, and manga and try to use these mediums as a source of inspiration whenever I get the chance.


My other obsession is what you see here... photography, and it's a medium I'm determined to explore to its fullest. For me, photography is more than just a hobby; it's a way of bringing the world to life and giving it meaning. I feel that photography is a way for me to express myself and share my unique perspective with the world. I plan to capture every moment of my explorations through my camera.
