Railway Photographs from Parallel Lines by Ian Marchant

I was rummaging about in my photo archives this morning looking 6×6 film images; I had read Mr Ian Willson’s Yammerman post about his oldest camera and I thought I’d dig out some of my medium format efforts using Yashica Mat and Mamiya Twin Lens cameras. More of that another time. I was reminded that I have this rather substantial, and some might say ‘interesting’ collection of images made while travelling with Mr Ian Marchant for his book Parallel Lines. None of the images here are medium format, nor even film, all shot using a Fuji S1 digital SLR. A good collection and my first piece of commissioned worked. To see them go here!
