The Guardian 'He doesn't want to shatter our illusions, merely quieten them - to allow us to see the complexity of what's before us.' Financial Times 'a quiet, sophisticated book . . . With its multi-layered approach, it's neither predictable nor didactic'. Photo-eye 'a series of intensely concentrated impressions that rewards, indeed encourages, a slow, measured drinking-in.' British Journal of Photography 'The odd yet unmistakable character of English country life is revealed in an evocative new series of photographs' The Telegraph.
