Heart of Albion
I trained in art and photography.
On cycling tours, it was fun to visit churches, photograph carving, whatever caught the eye! Then, during the 1980s, alerted to Kathleen Basford's book The Green Man, I became aware of his commanding presence. Henceforward, my attention was concentrated!
Five large, fat albums later, the hunt continues! Home processing of b&w photographs allowed for greater control, but was too time-consuming, so was reluctantly abandoned for colour. Thanks to personal exploration and generous contributions from friends and numerous publications, I have compiled a register of sightings worldwide, regularly updated.
It is my pleasure to spread the gospel, exchange ideas and assimilate data on Green Men to share with fellow researchers and enthusiasts through a correspondence network.
A selection from Ruth Wylie's extensive of photographs of Green Men carvings were used in Explore Green Men.
