Phoetry#1 – ‘Down in the Sheds’ (Creative Wakefield Commission) Rhubarb Festival 2020



‘Down in the Sheds’

What happens to the farmer when the children have flown?

When a young man finds his dead Father’s secret diary on the family farm it opens up a world he never knew existed… He says from the grave the things he couldn’t say face to face.

‘Phoetry’ is a collaboration between poet Paul Bateson and photographer Mark Ratcliffe.

‘Down in the Sheds’ is their first project; a digital photo-scape with poems. Part photo-show, part audio-novella,; Down in the Sheds’ shines a light on the quiet creativity of man who would never say.
