Amateur Photographer is the world’s oldest consumer weekly photographic magazine, first published in October 1884. They have given WILDERLAND : wildlife and wonder from the Shropshire Borders a five star review. This is what they say:
THERE has been a boom in photographers and writers taking flight from urban life to reconnect with Britain’s natural spaces. Bookshelves creak with nature writing by the likes of Robert Macfarlane and Helen Macdonald, and in the pages of this very magazine wildlife and landscape photography is in abundance. The charm and glamour of stepping onto and recording a land teeming with primitive history, and witnessing its inhabitants untethered by social concerns and problems, appeals to all of us. In this collection of wildlife imagery and writing, Andrew Fusek Peters explores the Shropshire borders. It’s a project that seems not to be about an insider looking in and hoping to grab a few award-winning images, but a person using his camera to step into the world and, with some luck, bring something back that can be cherished and preserved on the most personal level. It’s a lovely book and, above all things, inspiring. ★★★★★
The Countryman Magazine says this:
A lovely book with stunning photos and evocative writing
Outdoor Photography’s review says:
Andrew Fusek Peters takes us through the seasons of his home county in this 160 page book. Along with wide vista landscape images, you can see British wildlife in all its glory: pictures of kingfishers, lapwings, cuckoos and skylarks – plus otters, ponies, hares and bats – haven’t escaped Peters’ astute eye. A delight to read.
