Peter Laurence

Landscape photographer and author based in the N.W. of England.

The main emphasis of my work is in exploring the human land relationship. How the landscape has come to reflect our usesage of it, whether through work or leisure, prompting us to consider the ethical challenges and issues that confront us today.

The U.K. landscape embodies a unique sense of history, and one that can be traced back thousands of years, occasionally manifesting itself through visible artifacts, groundwork’s and monuments. These landmarks being created by human endeavour, have through the passing of time become a part of it. Seeing these impacts and the settings in which they are placed one cant help think back to the lives of the people that created them. and  perhaps it is these ancient echos one feels and tries to capture.

Several projects are maintained concurrently  in this vain, including Britain’s Coast, The Forest Of Bowland and Divided Land.

My next exhibition will take place at the Lytham Heritage Gallery, 25th Aug – 13th September 2020
Titled “Human Land” it will include new works from the U.K. coast and Northern England
