Description
Best known for his evocative landscape paintings, Paul Nash (1889-1946) was also a consummate photographer, who believed that the camera could reveal aspects of the world that the painter could not. While they have long been known as a compositional tool for his paintings, this book, which includes an informative contextual essay, reveals his recently digitalised black-and-white photographs as powerful and atmospheric works in their own right -- from images of tree trunks and ploughed fields to lighthouses and haystacks, crumbling stone walls and statuary, rocks and pebbles.
