The Countryman Review (August 2016)
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. ★★★★★
Amateur Photographer Review (2nd June 2016)
His images have a lyrical quality, he presents them with a passion that’s both inspiring and engaging
Ben Osborne, Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2007
This is the best kind of book – lyrical, entertaining and beautiful. Andrew’s photos take my breath away. When he writes about his wild encounters, his love of nature is so infectious it makes me want to smile and get outside.
Mairi Eyres, Young Landscape Photographer of the Year 2015
Among the current crop of British nature writers, he deserves a prominent place.
