The Tempest {weeks 6 | 7 | 8 }

{+jo}   Who is Shakespeare to this group? He’s a man that has brought about some form of inspiration. But even that is a little too ambiguous.

The Tempest {week4/5}

{video, text: +jo photos: +jo and Thomas Strickland}   I’m sure visitors to Barrington Hall in Roswell are wondering what on earth is being constructed behind the historic house.
