I’ve been to East Anglia a couple of times, visiting Hunstanton, Holkham, Cromer, the reserve at Snettisham, and of course Sandringham. But after working on Justin MInns’ Photographing East Anglia recently, I’ll be making several photographic trips as soon as I can. I’m inspired.
Justin’s book is about to go to the printers and should be back late March.
Signed pre-orders—with free UK shipping— are now available for £22 (RRP £27.95, a saving of £5.95) at our SHOP.
Photographing East Anglia is a big book, with over 500 pages covering 150 locations across Norfolk, Suffolk, North Essex and Cambridgeshire, including city guides to Norwich and Cambridge. The foreword has been kindly written by the acclaimed landscape photographer, David Noton
Justin’s book features over 800 of his photographs including lots of windmills and windpumps on the Broads and fens, and beach huts and old harbours filled with boats along East Anglia’s extensive coastline. Inland areas featured include the Fens, heaths, villages, waterways and woodlands that inspired the paintings of John Constable and Thomas Gainsborough. Also included are medieval castles, ancient villages, stately homes and the historic cities of Cambridge and Norwich. The areas’ bird watching is second to none and the big East Anglian skies and atmospheric light are legendary.
Justin knows the area intimately, and whilst if you live close some of the locations will be familiar, all the classics are included: Hunstanton, Wells-next-the-Sea, Flatford, Herringfleet windpump, Thornham etc but he has gone far beyond these essential visits including locations that are rarely heard of or visited. This is a well-researched and comprehensive photo-location guidebook with inspiring and stunning photography and will be an essential companion when planning and visiting East Anglia.
