About the Book
Children Of God's Own County.
A stunning collection of fabulous portraits and breathtaking landscapes from one of Yorkshires top photographers.
The idea behind this book – to raise funds for Candlelighters – is inspired by Jacob, Andy's' son. Jacob faces many medical challenges in his life one of which is that he suffers with severe hemophilia and it because of this that we have to frequent the children’s Oncology ward at Leeds hospital. Here we witness the reality of childhood cancer, the children, their families, Doctors and nurses facing this every day and we see what a difference Candlelighters make to those families.
All images by Andy Hopkinson, all words by Sharon Malone, together
