Working the View: Yorkshire Dales National Park Hardcover
This book is the result of a brother and sister collaboration between photographer Mark Butler and writer Sarah Butler. It features 40 participants who have shared the locations and stories behind their favorite views. Each person was asked to suggest three viewpoints which have specific meaning for them. From these a broad spread of locations was selected throughout the National Park and its potential extension to the north and west. Mark spent a year and half photographing these locations, often returning to the same areas again and again to ensure each view was captured in the best season and light conditions available. Sarah interviewed each participant to discover the reasons behind their choice of view, and learn about the work they do in the landscape. Each interview was recorded and then written up into a coherent 'piece', using the words of the participants. As a result each interview reads as if spoken and retains the 'voice' of the participant.
