Product Description

Review

In the case of this book, [it] gets as close to silver prints as mass production allows. That's no surprise as publisher Graffeg has a reputation for high quality photography-based books and technically this one is a cracker. --Darryl Corner - Western Mail

If the power and ineffable beauty of Wilson s images don t make this one of your favourite books, then his down-to-earth jottings ought to. --Jude Roland - Welsh Arts Now

One Welsh photographer has captured a hidden side to the country's shoreline, lanes and mountains with a series of images mainly taken outside the main visitor season. --Lisa Jones - Western Mail

David Wilson is a native of Pembrokeshire, and specialises in photographing his homeland. His passion for black and white, and the quality of his work jumps out at you from every page. For this committed photographer, Pembrokeshire proves a fantastic subject. The layout - with each image enjoying a full page of its own - is crisp and clear. With each photograph is an extended caption, providing an insight into the photographer's motivation in planning the shot. The printing is excellent, with the tonal range of the original prints, from crisp white snow, through grey monolith to black forbidding storm clouds, brought out to the full. In Pembrokeshire, you are never far from the sea,and the pictures of the coast are some of the most beautiful. All are shot in dramatic fashion. The clouds are stunning and the light is superb. Seen as a themed collection, these images work well. There is a consistency of style across varied subjects, from derilict cottages to popular Tenby Harbour. All have the photographer's own touch. They can be viewed as a unique portrait of a wonderful county. An excellent fine art book that leaves you wanting to visit Pembrokeshire. --Andrew Seabourne Evans - Royal Photographic Society Journal (Oct 2010)

About the Author

David Wilson was born and brought up in Haverfordwest and now lives just a few miles downstream in the riverside village of Llangwm with wife Anna and son Charlie. He bought his first camera at the age of seventeen spending many carefree days riding around Pembrokeshire on his motorbike with a 35mm Canon and an ordnance survey map, learning to take landscape photographs while exploring the coast and countryside. Today, David seeks to capture the county's many different faces; the windswept coast of mid-winter, a sunny spring dawn on the Cleddau Estuary, a derelict cottage, or the gentle contours of the Preseli mountains. He is predominantly, though not exclusively, a fine art black and white landscape photographer. Pembrokeshire lends itself perfectly to tonal interpretation; black and white can convey both drama and tranquility.

I recently bought this book having been attracted by the beautiful mono photograph on the cover of a traditional Pembrokeshire cottage.

It certainly was money well spent.

David Wilson's photography is stunning.

The book contains 50 high quality mono shots that really capture the timeless beauty of this tucked away part of Wales. None of your classical picture postcard type views here, these photographs have been taken at times of year when the crowds of tourists have gone and the weather adds so much more drama to the already stunning scenery. David Wilson seems to have really caught the essence of Pembrokeshire with this work.

The print quality is excellent with a very faithful reproduction of tones and the whole book has a very high quality feel to it.

As a longstanding amateur photographer I would recommend this book to photographers who love great landscape work and to anyone who loves this very special part of Wales.

I was bought this as a Christmas present and cannot express how much I enjoyed taking all the images in - all different, all special and all saying so much.

I adore Pembrokeshire and am a big fan of spending money on books that are super quality, timeless and will never leave my bookshelf. This is one of those books.

The write ups are simple and so easy to relate to - it's all about opportunity. Pembrokeshire has some classic beautiful spots but for me what this photography does is grabs a special point in time where the light or angle or moment is extra special.

I adore this and would recommend anyone to go for it. For Pembrokeshire lovers, it's the perfect blend of coastal scenes, rustic farmhouses in the hills and many more precious scenes.

Buy it and keep it forever, or treat someone you know has a soft spot for this truly wonderful county.

Having recently booked a long weekend in West Wales and being a keen photographer I stumbled upon this excellent book by David Wilson which features a series of fantastic black and white images, accompanied by a short description of the scene as seen through the eyes of the photographer. The book has been an inspiration to me and will make my upcoming trip all the more rewarding.
