Journey Through the British Isles

Harry Cory Wright
Foreword by Adam Nicolson

In the tradition of the great journeys taken by such photographers as Fox Talbot, Fenton and Bourne, Harry Cory Wright set out in March 2006 on a quest to capture, using a large-format plate camera, the variety of natural landscapes that make up the British Isles. Beginning in the fragile, frozen beauty of Unst in Shetland at the spring equinox, he travelled down through the Western Isles and mainland Scotland to Northumberland, and farther south through England and Wales. This stunning book documents Cory Wright’s remarkable journey. Each photograph is infused with the unique spirit of its location – from vast, wild mountain ranges to verdant, dewy forests at sunrise, from windswept beaches in winter to fields bathed in late-summer, early-evening sun.


A unique photographic record of a journey through some of the most breathtaking locations in the British Isles
Cory Wright’s Gandolfi plate camera captures images of exquisite detail and intensity
A magnificently produced, large-format book that will appeal to anyone interested in landscape photography
