8 September 2009


On 21 June my friend Nick Hand set off from Bristol on a sponsored bike ride around the coast of Great Britain. He's been making soundslide films along the way of artisans and uploading them on his Slowcoast website.
The images above are taken from Nick's Soundslide interview with Paul Smith. Other personal favourites are of Old Town Outfitters, Bill Bontoft the stick maker, Tilda Swinton's and Mark Cousins' Pilgrimage Film Festival, RS Bowie Bike shop and Aardman animation. But they are all so very inspiring. It's such a worthwhile project, 3707 miles in (and counting) he's raised money and shown us the rich variety of dedicated artisans that populate our coastline.
