Once a Year, Some Traditional British Customs was first published in 1977 establishing Homer Sykes as one of the UK’s leading young photographers. Over a period of almost 7 years he travelled the country photographing around 100 traditional British customs, with over 80 appearing in the book. Though inspired by the 19th century photographer Benjamin Stone, Homer Sykes approached the events with a distinctly modern sensibility, creating dynamic images which focus mainly on the tradition that is being re-enacted against a background of everyday life. In recent years Homer Sykes’s photographs have become recognised as one of the most important archives of British traditional customs as well as a fascinating insight into life in 1970s Britain. Homer Sykes has exhibited widely both in the UK and internationally and has published 14 books, including many which cover other aspects of British life.
