Observations by

Ashridge Field


with Amy Goodwin
August 2018

Ashridge is an intergenerational art school run annually in rural Devon by Illustrator & Researcher Desdemona McCannon. The group selected a theme for each day & documented under these themes over the week. Ellie & Amy ran Oulipo workshops, connected to the themes chosen by the participants. These writings are captured in smaller A6 books within the A5 photobooks.
The themes:

A. rtists
S. ky
H. ouses
R. esting
I. nside spaces
D. ogs
G. ates
E. ating
