Homer Sykes. Vintage Prints from "Once a Year"

Homer Sykes. Vintage Prints from

Claire and James Hyman are pleased to have purchased a selection of very rare vintage prints from Homer Sykes's celebrated 1970s series on British folk customs, Once a Year. James comments: "I've known and loved these pictures for years. For me growing up in the 1970s what is shown is at once familiar and extraordinary. I had the same haircut and clothes as the jeering boys on the street in Minehead, and remember harvest festivals, country pubs, maypoles and Morris dancing."
