New book on the Forest of Dean by photographer Chris Morris

The Forest of Dean - Photographs by Chris Morris

The Forest of Dean - Photographs by Chris Morris

Simply titled ‘The Forest of Dean: photographs by Chris Morris’, the book’s subject matter covers many of the cultural and traditional features that make the Dean so unusual an area.

As well as dramatic landscapes the vivid contemporary photography celebrates the working freeminers, ‘commoners’, salmon fishermen and a coracle maker, as well as a surprise
picture of the late Lady Healey in the bluebells; there is a section on art and artisans, another on the remnants of the Dean’s extraordinary industrial history and reference to the author’s work with schools.

Jan Royall (Baroness Royall of Blaisdon – leader of the opposition in the Lords) writes in her foreword:

‘… a superb introduction to the wonderful Forest of Dean and everything that makes it special’.

The book will be launched at the Forest Bookshop in Coleford late June
