Somewhere in Between – An Adventure on the North Norfolk coast path
Second book of photography from Jon Clifton.
Published in March 2021, somewhere in between is the second book of photography from West Norfolk based photographer Jon Clifton.
‘During the Coronavirus Pandemic in August 2020, photographer Jon Clifton decided to take a walk along the Norfolk coast path. Three days and fifty three miles later, he was back at home with a huge blister, aching legs and a smartphone full of images. somewhere in between features a small selection of those images and tells the story of Jon’s ‘long walk home’, through which he raised over £1500 for local good causes’.
Along with square format images which tell the visual story of Jon’s walk from Cromer to Snettisham, the book touches briefly on themes related to the Coronavirus pandemic. The book’s title comes from the feeling of uncertainty Jon felt after being furloughed from his day job and not knowing what the future might hold. Publication has been timed to coincide with the lifting of lockdown restrictions and the gradual return of hope.
Jon says ‘the walk was a huge personal challenge and I think the story ties in well with themes of perseverance and battles against adversity, things we’ve all had too much practice in over the past few months. It felt incredibly important to document this period of life, the book includes memories from a strange time that will last a lifetime’.
From beautiful beaches to remote marshland and glorious countryside, somewhere in between features a selection of images that visitors to (or residents of) the Norfolk coast will appreciate and perhaps find solace in if currently unable to visit.
Produced with the help of twenty sponsors, somewhere in between has been dedicated to ‘those who’ve lost their lives to Covid-19, our incredible NHS care staff and the scientists who discovered the vaccines’.
With an official publication date of 23rd March, the book is available to order now via Jon’s website. It will also soon be available to order online through Amazon and Waterstones. Later in the year, Jon hopes to be able to attend local art and craft fairs to sell the book in person.
Jon is now in the process of planning a second coast path walk. Next time he hopes be joined by a small group of fellow adventurers, all raising money for local causes close to their own hearts. Plans are set to be finalised in the coming weeks with details published online and via social media feeds.
