Jesse Hill Gun Makers
A photographic look at the texture and details of the most traditional, still functioning gun making workshop left in Britain. The Jesse Hill factory features mainly belt driven machines which you'd be hard pushed to find operating anywhere these days. Once these kind of machines made everything, operated by skilled engineers like Haydn Hill, but have long since been replaced with high tech equivalents controller by computers. Naturally, the results of these modern machines are staggering, but there is something about this traditional way of working that speaks to our emotions and capturing the heart of this operation is no easy task. I hope this gallery goes some way towards letting you in on a real treasure.
