About

Driven by a passion for the hidden places writer and photographer Matt set out on an audacious exploration of the limits of the unprepared and overly ambitious. With only two hours experience under his belt he paddled and wild camped his way 250 miles along the Cornish coast, trawling for mackerel, gliding with the seabirds and cetaceans, and sleeping under the stars in secret coves.

 

 

 

Yet the British weather made a mockery of such romance; the Atlantic tore the seas apart as often as they offered up perfect glass. Exhaustion and the unrelenting wind and sun, along with shipping tankers, dangerous currents and summer storms served up more brutality than beauty on this life changing paddle.

 

 

 Here Matt has collected together a beautiful celebration of the journey and amazing people who were part of that adventure. A stunning collection of images and writing straight from the coast and moving black and white portraits and landscapes brought together here in A Line Between The Tides to highlight the beauty and fragility of our oceans and beaches.

 The book brings together writers, photographers and marine conservationists all in love with the county and the draw of the seas. Heather Koldeway (ZSL and the One Less campaign), Cal Majors (Paddle against Plastic), Tim Nunn (The Plastic Project) and Martin Dory (2minutebeachclean) write about their passion and love of the seas and their tireless work to protect it and we hope to raise funds to help support them in their campaigns.

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

The publishers and printers are already on board (no pun intended) and the lion's share of the portraits taken. If there are any unforeseen changes, delays by the printers or other external hold ups we will advise you guys immediately.
