In 1984 I was in the second year of the BA (Hons) Photographic Studies course at Derby College of Higher Education (now the University of Derby). I was commissioned to produce photographs for a group exhibition to be held at Impressions Gallery, York, titled “Roads To Wigan Pier”. During July and August of that year I travelled around the North of England exploring what was to me an unfamiliar landscape.

In the months leading up to Christmas I shot hundreds of pictures whilst out walking in the parks of Derby: a mix of landscapes and still-life. They are all in square format, mostly shot on my Lumix LX-3, with a few taken on the D700. I’ve collected the best of them together in this book, which is a visual journey through the transition from Autumn to Winter. The book is a petite little thing (7″ x 7″) which can be yours for a very reasonable price. Beautifully printed with rich, detailed images it contains around 70 photos on 40 pages, available in hardcover or softcover versions.
