Notes from The Singing Hills is my newsletter containing updates about the photographic project I am working on, tentatively titled "The Singing Hills" after a Howard Thomas novel of the same name. It will be posted between two to four times a year.

This ongoing project concerns people of North Welsh heritage in Remsen area of Central New York and The Slate Valley region on the Vermont border. The aim of the project is to draw a visual line of connection between the people, land and life of in New York, Vermont and North Wales, while incorporating elements of Welsh mythological storytelling, such as the legend of Prince Madoc and The Mabinogion. 

It is my hope this newsletter will help you keep up to date with the project as it progresses, and I open it up to you to forward on to people to subscribe who you think will find it interesting or who might consider being part of the project.

Subscribe to get full access to the newsletter and website. Never miss an update.

If you find it interesting and think someone else might too, please share it with them.

About Me – Ed Brydon

I am a photographer and writer available for commissions based near Farnham, Surrey, in south east England, just 45 minutes from London. I also regularly work in North Wales. 

My more recent work explores personal connections to place, the land and natural environment, how each of those, and the connections between them, are changing. 

In 2017 this project was exhibited at Northern Eye Festival in Colwyn and I was subsequently awarded a “Many Voices, One Nation’ commission from the Welsh Parliament in 2019 to make new work on this project for exhibition around Wales in 2019-20.
