Conversations on the HudsonBy Hand, Nick Hand
One spring day in 2012, fresh from his circumnavigation of the British Isles, English designer Nick Hand set off on his bicycle from Brooklyn, New York and pedalled north along the Hudson River toward the Adirondack Mountains. His leisurely pace suited his simple agenda-to talk to the artists and craftspeople he met along the way. Conversations on the Hudson is a visual record of his five-hundred-mile journey through the hills, mountains and countryside of the Hudson Valley. This one-of-a-kind collection pairs Hand's beautiful photographs alongside visits to a seed librarian, a printer and publisher, a brewer, a stone sculptor, a sheep farmer, a distiller, a maple syrup producer and a boat restorer, among others.
