Making For Home
Making for Home - Andrea’s latest book project (published in June 2017 by Pimpernel Press) provides the photography to accompany text written by Professor Alan Tait. ‘In Making for Home, Alan Tait traces his journey from childhood imaginings to a tenement flat in Glasgow in the 1960’s to the Moffat Valley in the Scottish Borders, where he bought a remote farmhouse in the 1970s. Making for Home is at once a memoir, a meditation on the nature of buildings and home and a history of the unique place, from earliest times, through the agricultural revolution, to the arrival of the Forestry Commission, which changed the landscape of the Valley forever, and beyond. The result is a lament - but not a dirge - for the valley will always move on and give shelter to men and animals.
