DESCRIPTION:

Launch of Peebles & Tweeddale, the new book by acclaimed landscape photographer Allan Wright.

Join Allan Wright for a stunning slideshow of images from his latest book. Allan will also be interviewed by Rich Rowe.

An experienced international landscape photographer, Allan Wright has embraced many distinctive natural and urban elements in his working life – all driven by a quest to find uniqueness and an “essence of place”. Though his roots for decades were out west in the wilds of Galloway, he has in recent years found a home in Peebles and become absorbed in town life – including opening Zenwalls, a commercial art gallery on the High Street.

The work presented in his new book encompasses a territory that reaches out from a Peebles-centric core to the southwest almost to the source of the River Tweed, and to the east as far as Yair. “In my quest for that essence of place, I hope that people will recognise and feel their personal connection with this wonderful area,” comments Allan. “I offer this work with a feeling of sincere gratitude for the opportunity I have been given to be part of this community.”
