The Knitters

by Paul Hands


I'm creating a photo documentary on the community around Hinckley called 'The Knitters'.  The name was used by the local football team, Hinckley United.  It's coined from the history of the towns main industry, Hosiery.  My project is under scrutiny as it's towards my FMP and contributing a large proportion towards the grading, for my degree in photography.

Here's just a couple of my favourites from the project so far.  There's plenty more shoots coming up for this but here's a midway look at how it's coming along.
