Inspiration: Ian Macdonald

A portrayal of the game Quoits, not so popular now in the modern day, but that makes the enthusuiam for the skilled portrayed in these images by Ian Macdonald all the more special. Macdonald shows us a very British way of life behind the game, with tea being served, as almost a religious experience. I am interested in the way different classes and areas of the UK are portrayed throughout the timeline of photography. These photographs were taken by Macdonald in the late 70s, at Esk valley, North Yorkshire.
