What is Landscape by Jeremy Walker?

Landscape is a book by UK-based landscape photographer, Jeremy Walker.

This 232-page hardback book features a foreword by the editor of Amateur Photographer magazine, Nigel Atherton, and is subdivided into three sections, England, Wales and Scotland.

Although Jeremy leads many workshops, the book is not instructional, it’s more of the coffee-table variety with a collection of atmospheric images. Each image is accompanied by a paragraph giving a little of the history of the location and a second describing the atmosphere of the place and/or Jeremy’s experience during the shoot.

Many of the images feature a ruined historic building or man-made structure, there are Cornish tin mines, welsh castles and abandoned cottages, each telling a story about the landscape.

Review

Landscape doesn’t smash you between the eyeballs and it isn’t a series of picture-postcard images, rather it’s a collection of beautiful photographs that convey the atmosphere and, in some cases, a sense of the history of the locations.

Including buildings in the images heightens the sense of history, while Jeremy’s use of exposure, light and colour hint at the story behind the building.

The images are a mixture of black and white, subtly-toned and muted colour photographs. There are no deep-blue skies or high saturation sunsets. Instead, you get a masterclass in delicate but powerful landscape photography.

Although there are no maps or in-depth descriptions of the shooting locations, Jeremy gives enough information to make the general location identifiable while the images inspire you to visit.
