The hostel I stayed in during our stay in Manchester.
West Park Asylum - A film about an abandoned psychiatric hospital
Something else to look forward to.
A 1942 photo of Hans Scholl, Sophie Scholl and Christoph Probst - members of the student resistance group, “White Rose”. The group distributed pamphlets across Germany appealing to the public’s sense of moral duty, calling for resistance to the Nazi dictatorship, and demanding an end to the war.
Sophie would be caught and reported to the Gestapo on the 18th of February, 1943 at Ludwig Maximilians University. All three would then be sentenced 5 days later and beheaded.
This is a film I made in the last year of my degree. The film was shoot at an abandoned asylum in England. Please take a look at the rest of the website.
Tomorrow I graduate and then the day after, at 6am, I set off to Scotland on foot with a friend. I feel slightly unprepared, food has not really been discussed between me and my friend that much, for the best part of the trip we will probably be lighting fires outside our tent and cooking tinned food in pans. Occasionally, I presume, we will have lunch in villages and towns and buy more for the days and nights ahead.
The journey is the best part of 700 miles with the chance of becoming shorter or longer depending on how many rides we can catch and where we might stay over-night. Scotland looks much smaller on a map sprawled out across a bed, but I have the feeling we may have to compromise on a few of our selected destinations in order to complete the trip in the time with have available.
We will pitch up on the edges of lochs, in forests, on the sides of mountains, and perhaps even upon beaches. I am looking forward to seeing some amazing landscapes and scenery, trying some Scottish whiskey, and reaching John O’groats with a celebratory cigar in hand.
Grampian Mountains in some bizarre depiction!
