British Landscape by John Davies
Book DescriptionThe best of John Davies' landscape photographs of Britain, made between 1979 and 2005, are presented in the order in which they were taken and on a spectacular scale. The series begins with Davies' dramatic photographs of the Scottish mountains and the Lake District, before moving on to examine urban and semi-urban Britain. Most of the pictures are made from a position of elevation, many of the edges of towns, revealing layers of social history from the Industrial Revolution onwards, and allowing viewers to read the landscape in the manner of a history picture. Stunningly beautiful and loaded with information about how the landscape has been moulded over the last 200 years, the book is introduced with a reflection on the British landscape by popular journalist, Jonathan Glancey, with extended captions and accompanied at the back with an interview with the photographer.

Author Biography - John Davies
John Davies is widely regarded as Britain's leading landscape photographer. Davies makes 'narrative' landscape photographs; each tells a story about process, change, transformation. He began in the mid-Seventies with studies of the wild landscapes of the British Isles, but in 1981 he began an ongoing documentation of urban Britain, concentrating on the changes provoked by the industrial and post-industrial landscape (published in A Green & Pleasant Land, 1986 - out of print and now a collector's item). He has worked widely on architectural and environmental projects in France, Italy, Spain, Holland and other parts of Europe. His photographs have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Pompidou Centre, Paris and in London at the Royal Academy of Art and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Jonathan Glancey is the Architecture and Design Editor of The Guardian. Writing and broadcasting regularly on all aspects of the built environment, Glancey was previously assistant editor of The Architect and a founding editor of the architecture and design magazine, Blueprint. Described as a "wonderful communicator" by Norman Foster, Glancey is also a regular television and radio broadcaster.
