Book Description

26 April 2010
Ann Kelley's new collection of black and white photographs, taken between 1980 and 2009, shows the natural beauty of St Ives, one of the most loved Cornish towns. The fascinating, dreamlike pictures were taken in a variety of locations which embody the essence of St Ives: the sea, artists studios, fishermen's lodges, homes, galleries and churches. With her ancient Nikon FM as well as with a digital camera, Kelley records the ever changing light at St Ives. The photographs are accompanied by texts by Rosamunde Pilcher, Sir Terry Frost, Brian Barron and by poems by Helen Dunmore and Sylvia Kantaris.

5.0 out of 5 stars Memories of St Ives 11 Jun 2010
I loved this book, it brought back so many happy memories of when I was 20 and lived and worked in St Ives in the late 60's for one glorious summer. The black and white photography is beautiful and transported me back to the St Ives I knew. The narratives were such a joy to read, I loved every one. St Ives has changed so much since I lived there but I still love to visit and walk it's streets and think about the happy carefree times and the soft early morning rain always makes me feel 20 again.

This book is a joy and has pride of place on my coffe table. I pick it up often and wander down memory lane, it's gorgeous!
