Fog in the Hills and Aits
"Fog everywhere. Fog up the river, where it flows among green aits and meadows; fog down the river, where it rolls deified among the tiers of shipping and the waterside pollutions of a great (and dirty) city. Fog on the Essex marshes, fog on the Kentish heights."
Thus begins one of Charles Dickens' most beloved novels, Bleak House. Inspired by this 1852 novel, here is a collection of landscapes with that most ephemeral of atmospheres.
In this new title, I'm allowing even more of the potential of chapbook layout and design to flourish, including using a page of the handwritten manuscript from Bleak House to serve as the background for each page. I'm also using a true split tone in the images — warm tone for the shadows and darker areas, cool blue tone for the fog and highlights.
