Dull, Fryup, Nobottle, Keith, Catsgore, Indian Queens, Upperthong, Dufftown, Twatt ...these aren't just nonsense words but real signposts along the highways and byways of Britain. And here they are: brilliantly photographed and collected in a witty, almost surreal book of images by acclaimed young photographer/cinematographer Dominic Greyer.
Dominic Greyer has been fascinated by peculiar place names ever since his parents took him, at age three, on a family holiday to Boot, in Cumbria. Twenty-five years later, after establishing himself as a talented young photographer and cinematographer (including making music promos with Blur, Pulp and Fatboy Slim and a Channel 4 TV series, 'Lesser Spotted Britain') he began touring the highways and byways of Britain searching for ever odder place names to photograph. Over 30,000 miles and two hundred photos later, the result is FAR FROM DULL
