Product Description

Review

A sumptuous collection... this is a book of profound interest. (Church of England Newspaper)

David Stanford's atmospheric photography captures the spirit of these unique buildings as architectural heritage, as historic monuments and as places of Christian devotion. (Suffolk & Norfolk Life)

A pleasure to peruse with lots of gloriously evocative images on every page. (Lady)

About the Author

In the 1960s, David Stanford started out studying Painting and History of Art at Walthamstow School of Art alongside such figures as Ian Dury, Vivian Stanshall and Peter Greenaway. On graduation from the Royal College of Art, he established his own photographic studio, photographing a number of famous bands for album sleeves. Over the next 25 years, he shot a wide range of high-profile advertising campaigns and fashion spreads for magazines in London and Paris. He specialized in fashion and beauty, but also managed to cover everything from cars to wars, and even directed a number of TV commercials and film documentaries. He has recently returned to painting, but still travels extensively on his personal, eclectic, photographic adventures. He has enthusiastically embraced digital photography, and very rarely now uses traditional film. He lives in East Sussex.

Format: Hardcover
A few years ago, on the recommendation of a friend, I rented a car and spent a few days driving around East Anglia. That is how I discovered the rural churches of Norfolk - their quiet serenity, their medieval foibles, their sense of welcome - a serene experience that will live with me always. But what I so wanted was an illustrated book that conveyed the encounter of approaching the church in the countryside, crossing through fields of poppies, and the silent joy of sitting inside, broken only by birdsong from the eaves.

This is the book/souvenir I hungered after, a marvellous work which conveys the human experience of encountering those small ancient churches of East Anglia. Sixty churches are featured - all with a glossy pictorialist photograph from outside, many with additional colour shots of architectural details and historic interior features (each church also gets a short introduction by the author-photographer).

The quality of the photography and the design is high, but what I most enjoy is how the images in this book stir the reader with that special sense of quietude found in these creaky whitewashed buildings. I turn these pages (here in Australia) and it does take me back to a few very special days visiting churches and villages one summer in Norfolk.
