~ A Day in the Life ~ YHA Black Sail ~
Self initiated documentary project
I shot this series of photographs in 2012 while I was staying at YHA Black Sail in my capacity as photographer for the YHA.
At that time, the Wardens were Suzie and Martin and after spending just five minutes with them, I realised that I had the perfect opportunity right in front of my lens, to document the Wardens life as well as the Hostel life. I therefore, decided to shoot a ‘Day in the Life’ documentary style project to try and capture the atmosphere of one of the YHA’s most iconic and isolated hostels that sits at the foot of Great Gable in the Western heart of the Cumbrian mountains.
