Flags: A new Book

Trial Magazine - - NEWS -

Tal­ented youth tri­als rider, ac­tion man, son, fi­ancé and all-round good young man passed away re­cently af­ter a four-year bat­tle with cancer.

Pho­tog­ra­pher and for­mer Tri­als rider Joshua Turner is re­leas­ing a book of pho­tographs in­spired by Mo­tor­cy­cle Tri­als. Com­pet­ing in var­i­ous club­man events held by the likes of Manch­ester 17, Mac­cles­field Tri­als Club and Stafford­shire Moor­lands from 2007 to 2015, Joshua is the third gen­er­a­tion of Tri­als rid­ers to come from the Turner fam­ily. Tri­als has had a sig­nif­i­cant ef­fect on Josh’s prac­tice as a pho­tog­ra­pher, par­tic­u­larly in the sub­ject he is in­ter­ested in work­ing on. The re­cur­ring theme of his work is the re­la­tion­ship be­tween the in­di­vid­ual and the land­scape, and although a vast sub­ject, has a per­sonal im­por­tance due to the in­flu­ence from rid­ing Tri­als.

The pho­to­book is called Flags, tak­ing its name from the ob­jects used to mark out sec­tions. The book will con­tain ap­prox­i­mately 30 pages, with 17 large-for­mat film pho­tographs. Josh has also cho­sen four im­ages where he used to mark out sec­tions when he first started rid­ing; the sec­tions will be printed onto trac­ing pa­per and laid over the pho­tographs of the sec­tions. Please show your sup­port for a fel­low Tri­als rider and up­com­ing pho­tog­ra­pher by pre-order­ing a copy of Flags.
