Village Hunt

Last year i spent some time with the local shooters in my village as they did their annual hunt. This project consists of portraits of the "beaters" who drive the birds towards the shooters and the "shooters" themselves. As people have strong views on animal hunting please be aware that some people may take offence.

I went to this project with an open mind and i can speak for the people in this project when i say that they have the up most respect for animals, life and the country side and i'd like to thank them for welcoming me into their hunt with an equal free and open mindedness.
