This Land brings together the work of two of Britain’s most respected photographers and countryside writers. Joe Cornish and Roly Smith have chosen fifty places that represent the variety and scope of the British countryside.
These range from the ancient quartzite rocks of the Scottish Highlands to the gritstones and limestones of the English Pennines and the rolling chalk downs of Southern England. There are sections on mountains, islands, woodlands and coasts, and the book concludes with a fascinating look at the ways in which mankind has shaped the landscape over thousands of years.
This personal selection allows both writer and photographer to reflect on experiences in places that have defined their sense of what landscape itself can be, both in reality and in the imagination.
