5.55am: ‘Looking into the heart of light, the silence.’ ‘The river’s tent is broken: the last fingers of leaf
Clutch and sink into the wet bank. The wind
Crosses the brown land, unheard. The nymphs are departed.
Sweet Thames, run softly, till I end my song.
The river bears no empty bottles, sandwich papers,
Silk handkerchiefs, cardboard boxes, cigarette ends
Or other testimony of summer nights. The nymphs are departed.
And their friends, the loitering heirs of city directors;
Departed, have left no addresses.
By the waters of Leman I sat down and wept . . .
Sweet Thames, run softly till I end my song,
Sweet Thames, run softly, for I speak not loud or long.
But at my back in a cold blast I hear
The rattle of the bones, and chuckle spread from ear to ear.’ #tseliot#thewasteland#morningwalk#sunrise#oldfatherthames [ #brewwithaview]
Today on American Photography’s Prophoto Daily and Motion Arts Pro #prophotodaily many thanks to David Schonauer for the great write up! Not all images from #oldfatherthames project but a few of them....
Detailed shot of my image ‘Sluts Hole’ from my ‘Old Father Thames ‘ Project.... ‘prostitution was rife in Victorian England, particularly in the big cities. As far as earning money went, it was relatively easy living for women of almost all ages....commonly known as the oldest occupation in the world..’ #oldfatherthames#fineart#fineartphotography@hasselblad

Thank you @aestheticamag for the text! The photographs of Julia Fullerton-Batten are drenched in theatrical suspense. Mixing fine art with cinematic imagery, the photographers work featured on the cover of @aestheticamag -have captured audiences globally. The artist has a rare skill in being able to unfold the many layers of the mind in one image, producing works overflowing with narratives, within one picture there are multitude of possibilities. The most recent body of work, Old Father Thames, is inspired by the river and its historical significance. .... #oldfatherthames#fineart#photography@aestheticamag

People often ask me where I get all those ideas from... preparing for a workshop for @bildernordic in Oslo for the weekend... this image was created January 1926. ‘Two women cross a flooded road near Staines, by means of a makeshift raft and a pole’. Staines is a town on the River Thames.... part of my OLD FATHER THAMES project... still work in progress... #flood#riverthames#oldfatherthames#inspiration@gettyimages

Seriously, I will be more than happy when I don’t have to drag my crew into the mud at low tide to shoot the Old Father Thames Project.... I have been recreating historical stories along the river Thames for nearly two years now.... working on two more ideas... hope to share these soon! #riverthames#oldfatherthames#london#behindthescenes@hasselblad
