Meet a Redeye Member - Verity Milligan

I was rather late entering the world of photography. I’ve always been creative, firstly hoping to be an illustrator, but never quite feeling like I was talented enough.

What dark adventure. I think this struck a chord. Dark Days, bring them on. Perhaps the definitive maxim for us underemployed, glum, down at heel, rained-on photographers of the damp and dark north. Did I mention rain? I think there was some last month, even a little more than normal.

This month's image review is Anne Marie Atkinson's 'By Family Farm Land', 2012. Review by Richard Mulhearn

I have chosen an image from the project 'The Rugged Places’. What draws me to this work, is the clear connection Atkinson has with her subject, and the sense of collaboration and shared voice she engenders to open out a narrative around the experience of growing up in a rural environment.
