Scaffold to the Moon is a tale of life, hope, dreams and aspiration, and an ode to those that shape and inspire us. Exploring the lines of photographic and illustrative storytelling, Huw Alden Davies’ new monograph / photobook is a dramatic and often humorous study of the artist’s father, a bi-product of a generation, and his devoted mother, central characters to his beloved Tumble.

 

“When people open the cover of Scaffold to the Moon, I want them to lose themselves for a moment; I want them to laugh, think, reminisce; remember, that innocence, hope and optimism they once felt, and I want them to remember that special someone, daft as a brush, who reminds us that sometimes it’s ok to let go. To not care, to be silly, be free, have fun. The world is a big place, a serious one with many big problems. Just remember, if we were standing on the moon, we would quickly be reminded how little we really are”. Huw Alden Davies

What everyone is saying:

 

 

“OMG, this book is genius!! You say that your father Prince is eccentric and unusual and one-of-a-kind. Well, my friend, so are you. Otherwise you could not have created this remarkable document of a remarkable man and his life. It is a piece of Wales come to life. I honestly don’t believe Prince could exist in any place except Wales and I don’t know why I say that but I’m convinced it’s true.

 

When you and this book are discovered I am going to say “I knew you when...” Because that is bound to happen and when it does you aren’t going to know what hit you. Neither will Prince. The way you write, the words you use, the grammar, everything about it is utterly unique. I am absolutely enthralled and refused to allow myself to sit and read this in one sitting. I want to savor it by looking at it bit by bit. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Just for being you and doing what only you could do. BRAVO!!!

 

Everything about this is amazing. Especially you”. Patricia Lay Dorsey

“What a book! A treasure of text and imagery. I'll enjoy reading through this. Very well done Huw. I'm going to take a lot of inspiration from this”. Robert Law

 

“It's an excruciating rollercoaster of emotions I'm left with the ball in my stomach reading the ‘off to the homes’ lines. It's deeply sad and funny in equal measures. But. Most of all knowing not not striking someone with a frying pan is true love, it's epic. Thank you”. Michael Ditch

 

“Sat down this morning with a cup of tea, got to read and look through some lovely photographs and words by Huw Alden Davies in his new book ‘Scaffold to the Moon’ it was so honest funny and intriguing. I loved reading about Prince and his numerous collections and inventions, such as the toilet Roll warmer. Genius. Check it out if you get the chance”. Millie Bethel 

 

“I was excited to get my copy of Huw Alden Davies’ Scaffold to the Moon, A study of Huw’s  father and community, and where his father grew up. This book is so nicely produced and the photos are gorgeous. The stories inside about Prince are actually laugh out loud funny, while some of the sections are really sweet and thought-provoking. I enjoyed this a lot. I love reading about relationships and characters, and scaffold to the moon brings all its characters to life so well”.  Martha O’Bien 

 

“Love love love this so much. A beautiful book about life. the beauty, absurdity, hilarity and tenderness of life and our relationships within. We all have stories like these and people like these. When we are separated from so many people this is a timely reminder of better days. Wonderful to support this artists work. Get yourself a copy now before they sell out.” Imogen Mills 

 

“We are so enjoying this fantastic book right now. No book at any other time has been discussed more in the house than this one. You read one paragraph and it triggers 20 minutes of pictures in your brain. It’s beyond a class act”. Tim Lyn 

 

“I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying this book. I've just read the cake in the face surprise I love the way I can pick it up and have a read have a look and go back again as you actually have to do as it's so full of life in that moment”.  Nanw Jenkins
