My new book TEN YEARS - SOUTH AFRICA, Photographic Memories 2008 - 2018 is now available to order in the UK and South Africa. This large landscape book includes over 230 high quality images, with descriptions and anecdotes compiled from 10 years travelling and photographing South Africa, Namibia and Botswana.
For those who know me from my time in Hout Bay you may remember my gallery and printing studio, where images included in this book were on display. Many local and international visitors were kind enough to visit my gallery, appreciate my work, and buy my Fine Art Prints – the book is also perhaps a reminder to the residents of South Africa especially Hout Bay, of the beautiful place they live in.
The book took me over two years to complete; designing the layout, choosing images and the narrative. For me it is not simply a photographic record of those places displayed in the book. Its a story of my time in South Africa and of my travels through a small part of this vast continent including some of the places I visited and the adventures I encountered.
My plan was to visit Hout Bay this year during the Christmas holidays to launch my book, however the SA government has restricted travel from the UK due to COVID-19!
If you are interested in a copy it is on offer as a pre-order at the moment; please contact me via my website here: https://www.petercorbett.com/contact to discuss availability and shipping times.
