“There are galleries you walk into and know immediately you are seeing something special, something different, something through the eye of a photographer who sees the world in a light only they can perceive. I don't get that feeling very often. I did at the Water Gallery. De la Mare's work on water and light is a phenomenon all its own. I love the print I purchased. If you are in Mendocino, don't miss this tiny tucked away water tower and a chance to talk directly to the photographer.”

Book I - Life, and Book II - Death, by William de la Mare. 

The first two parts of my ‘Archetypes’ trilogy are now available for purchase in the Water Gallery.

Archetypes is about life and how we live, about death and how we respond to dying, about interconnectedness and about meaning.

The story follows its main characters, the enigmatic Old Man, his son, Stigandr, the Traveller, and Stigandr’s wife, Torunn, as they discern their role in the world.

It follows their twin children, Svan and Svanna, born into a protected garden, but separated in the world, and alone.

It follows a family of humans, and the people whose lives they touch.

Together the books encompass a little less than 750 pages of prose and verse.

Printed in the Water Gallery on 32lb 100% cotton paper,
they are then bound by hand with hemp-twine, and
enveloped in selected handmade paper.
