Peter Laurence

A landscape photographer based near the Fylde & Ribble Valley areas of North West England

The main emphasis of my work is in exploring the human land relationship, particularly in the British Isles. How the landscape reflects our usesage of it and the impact it can have on our work and leisure time. Additionally and inevitably this also includes elements of land conflict and exploitation that endure to this day.
Several projects are maintained concurrently  in this vain, including Britains Coast, The Forest Of Bowland and Divided Land, all hoped to be published as books in the near future. Some images will also feature in forthcoming exhibitions.  There are also smaller sets of images that stem from the good fortune of living in an area surrounded  by National Parks and AONBs , which of course have a human history as well as a natural history.

The next exhibition will take place at The Lytham Heritage Gallery 14th Aug – 2nd September 2018
