The Red River

£74.99

Product description

The Red River in Cornwall rises east of Troon and flows just a few miles north then west, entering the sea between Gwithian and Godrevy. It flows through fields, farms and gardens, down a mine, across moors, bogs and beaches. This book offers a photographic record of its journey (taken by Jem Southam). It includes poems by locally born poet D. M. Thomas, and commentary by local writers, Frank Turk and Jan Ruhrmund.

Jem Southam, born in Bristol in 1950, is one of the UK's leading photographers. He is renowned for his series of colour landscape photographs, beginning in the 1970s and continuing until the present. His trademark is the patient observation of changes at a single location over many months or years.

This is a first edition soft back book, the covers are a little stained and worn, and the pages are age discoloured around the edges.
