More About the Author

Chris Morris was destined for a career as a scientist but dropped out of university after two terms. Physics had become too theoretical and he was drawn, by his more practical hobby, to photographic college. After three decades of corporate photography he moved to the Forest of Dean and with more time on his hands began documenting the area's old industry, abandoned and fading into the woods.

With help from the Countryside Agency this became his first book - Work in the Woods. Disagreement with the publisher, and further encouragement from the Agency, saw him set up the publisher Tanners Yard Press. More books followed, mostly documenting his interest in engineering history; against the trend in this field, none of Chris' books depend on old grey photography, rather celebrating their subject in a vivid modern style.

Product Description

From the Publisher

This book follows Chris Morris's previous `visual biographies' on Thomas Telford and IK Brunel. The lives of this great father and son team light up with the vivid modern photography which, faithfully tracking their difficulties as well as their triumphs, wonderfully celebrates their myriad achievements.
