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
