Made in cooperation with the regular visitors who returned weekly to a few small sales sheds at the heart of a British market city, Flock by Ken Grant marks the end of a ritual that has been an integral part of the midlands agricultural community of Hereford for centuries. Over the course of five years, Grant – known for his long term documentary projects – returned weekly to the same spaces to photograph. In doing so he has created a tender and sustained appreciation of a community as the last inner city livestock market in Britain makes way for the next chapter in Hereford’s regeneration programme.
