Book Description

15 Jun 2012
Sir David Attenborough has described Richmond Park as 'A very special place' - and with good reason. This vast oasis of green, just eight miles from the centre of London, is an ecological pearl in the midst of sprawling urbanisation. The park, most famous for its herd of 630 Fallow and Red Deer, is not only Europe's largest park, but is as big as the seven other royal parks combined. Since King Charles I enclosed the park in 1637, it has provided a haven of tranquillity and diversion for all its visitors. Today, some 2.5 million people pass through its gates each year. In this beautiful book, Alex Saberi captures Richmond Park's unique blend of rare and diverse wildlife, plant life and rolling landscapes. From a crow perching on a bench in the morning haze to a foolhardy Labrador, breaking impatiently away from its owner, the photographs capture its inherent beauty as well as those rare moments of wildlife action and majesty that only yield themselves to the most patient and knowledgeable of observers.

As someone who lives in the London suburbs, I had no idea such a wide array of nature was right on my doorstep! Saberi really captures something special in his collection and this really is a beautiful book. Highly recommended.

Format:Hardcover
20 years a local resident, this book is the finest set of pictorials of Europe's largest Royal Parks I've had the pleasure to open.

From his haunting front cover shot "Realm of the Deer", National Geographic photographer Alex Saberi expertly catches the readers eye with its stunning composition and exquisite Autumnal scene.

It's one of those stunning beautiful books that you just want to luxuriate over, taking your time to appreciate every page of beautifully-captured scenes of Richmond Park's stunning environs. Alex treats the reader to wildlife photography and landscapes that delight - making us curious to explore more of his national press featured photography at [...]

As an active PTA volunteer fundraiser and organiser local to Richmond Park, I'd love to introduce Alex to a couple of our outstanding local state schools and share with local students what inspired him to recently turn his hobby into a profession. This photographer's clearly one to watch & his photography well worth investing in.

In short: amazing photography, stunning book - whether to give as a gift, or better, to keep!
