This unabridged compact edition of photographer Harry Cory Wright's breathtaking book documents his quest to capture the variety of natural landscapes that make up the modern British Isles. In the tradition of the great journeys undertaken by such photographic pioneers as Fox Talbot, Cory Wright travelled with his large-format plate camera through the fragile, frozen beauty of Unst in Shetland, down through the Western Isles and mainland Scotland to the dusty chalklands and glowing harvests of southern England and Wales. Each of his remarkable images is infused with the unique spirit of its location - from wild mountain ranges to secret woodland glades, from windswept beaches in winter to wheatfields gleaming in the late-summer sun. With an evocative foreword by award-winning travel writer Adam Nicolson, this is an outstanding portrayal of rural Britain today.
