Capturing people carrying out their daily tasks - especially if their skills are a dying art - fascinates photographer Duncan Davis. He has spent forty years documenting the way of life of people as varied as miners with pit ponies underground, French lace-makers, traditional cheese-makers and farmers ploughing with horses. In amongst this, he has covered virtually every other field of photography including advertising, landscape, food and portrait. His large-scale, close-up shots of flowers hang in several of the bedrooms. He also took the photographs for the hotel’s brochure and website.
Biography: After school in County Durham, Duncan Davis studied photography at Sheffield Art College and Derby Art College. He recently moved from Northumberland to Weardale, County Durham, where, alongside his photography, he runs a pub and coffee house with the emphasis on locally-sourced food and beers.
