Eleven Years On
by Laura Loves
Fox hunting has been part and parcel of my upbringing and my memories of it stretches back to a very young age. I took part in my first day of hunting in 1991 in the Northumberland hills and have been involved ever since. In 2004, Hunting was banned, which made it illegal to hunt and control foxes with packs of hounds in the UK, which decided opinion greatly – especially between city dwellers and country folk. Despite this, the hunt continues – within the limitations of the law – and many people continue to follow and support their local hunt.

While the law has forced the hunt to evolve and adapt, much of the tradition and ceremony remains the same. The images in this piece of work are designed to capture the true essence of the hunt and how each have been moulded around the other. The works also brings the viewer’s attention the amount of pride and support that the hunt has, by showing the detail and importance of the hunt to many of the local communities involved.
