  2. Was lucky enough to see your work at the Greenroom. Absolutely stunning. You’ll have no trouble selling this set of work at all!

  3. Jane, following our conversation in the Earth Cafe the other day regarding your works for sale and interest in abandoned buildings, I’ve searched through my prints and retrieved a set of photographs taken several years ago of an abandoned farmhouse near Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, which I came upon quite by accident. I found myself exploring a series of cottages and outbuildings that had remained literally unchanged since before the 2nd World War. The fittings, kitchen utensils, farming implements etc all dated back to the 19th cent and possibly even earlier. In one of the outbuildings I came across a Haywain that could possibly have been late 18th cent! It was one of the most fascinating experiences I’ve had in photography. If you could send me your email address I’ll scan the prints and send you copies. By the way, I’ve explored the Urbex site and found it very interesting, especially the story of the ‘Flincher”! Regards, Peter.

  4. Rather interesting. Has few times re-read for this purpose to remember. Thanks for interesting article. Waiting for trackback

  5. Dear Jane,

    Just in case this is of interest I am emailing to let you know that ‘Mythogeography’ (the book) is just emerging from the printers. All the details are here –


    And there’s a website too, which pushes it all a little bit further and that’s here – http://www.mythogeography.com

    The book takes the form of a documentary-fictional collection of the internal documents, diary fragments, letters, emails, narratives, notebooks and handbooks of a loose coalition of artists, performers, ‘alternative’ walkers and pedestrian geographers. All Illustrated in full colour by Tony Weaver, who designed the Wrights & Sites’ Mis-Guide books.

    The fragmentary and slippery format recognises the disparate, loosely interwoven and rapidly evolving uses of walking today: as performance, as exploration, as urban resistance, as activism, as an ambulatory practice of geography, as meditation, as post-tourism, as dissident mapping, as subversion of and rejoicing in the everyday. ‘Mythogeography’ celebrates that interweaving, its contradictions and complementarities, and is an attempt at a handbook for those who want to be part of it.

    I hope you enjoy it and find it of some use.

    Best wishes,

    Phil Smith

  6. amazing… I can’t stop reading your site, there is huge amount of interesting work…had been hoping for a site of Samuels’ work after seeing it in an exhibition last year. (Our tutor at Uni recommended her show, and I wrote part of my dissertation about her).

    The interventions with Samuels’ photos amongst the originals, are particularly brilliant; very subtle and subversive.

    I love this work.
