My photographs documenting ‘The Hoppings’, one of Europe’s largest traditional traveling fun fairs. This began in the late 19th century and has been held annually on the Town Moor, Newcastle Upon Tyne , UK.

(none of my photographs are ‘Photoshopped’…..the middle photographs were taken in June 2012, at approx 4pm-which should have been daylight! As I was photographing the fair the sky suddenly went apocalyptically black due to the arrival of a mega summer storm that flooded many parts of the city)
