The burning times The European witch trials occurred between the 15th–18th Centuries. This period of history, known as the burning times saw thousands of innocent people, predominantly women, accused of witchcraft & heresy; and as a consequence, burned, hung or drowned. The images in this series are taken at locations in the UK & Spain where these trials occurred; these beautiful landscapes are hiding a dark and ugly past.

About Photographer

I am an artist working predominately with black & white, high grain, medium format film. Processing and printing my work in the darkroom is a large part of the photographic process for me; having control over the final outcome. I create limited edition prints and my latest work uses liquid light, producing one of a kind images.
