Photobook: J. Batey | Violin Maker

There’s a workshop on Shrewsbury Town Walls unchanged for decades, a fascinating place, like stepping back in time.

We were invited to take photographs of the stacks of cases, racks of instruments, traditional tools and spare strings, so long as we didn’t interrupt Julian whilst he was working.

This book captures the atmosphere of the workshop.

Julian served his apprenticeship in Washington with Barry Oliver, a graduate of the Cremona School of Violinmaking.

After working with Rafael Carrabba in Seattle, he returned to work with his father in North Shropshire, an internationally renowned expert & dealer.
