Scaffold to the Moon is a tale of life, hope, dreams and aspiration, and an ode to those that inspire us. Exploring the lines of photographic and illustrative storytelling, Huw Alden Davies’ new Photobook / short-novel 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

About the Publisher 
Beginning as an artist collaboration project dedicated to exploring visual concepts and theory through traditional and contemporary processes, iPigeon was formed by two frustrated but super enthused photographers Daniel Staveley and Huw Alden Davies, who’s love for photobooks, matched with an incessant need to make things and put them out there for the world to see, got them thinking… ‘why not start a Photobook label’.
