Most days I walk through the English countryside. Sometimes it’s cold, sometimes it’s wet and sometimes the sky is so blue it’s a joy to experience. But every day the countryside is an inspiration to me and VISTA is the result of that inspiration.

This photo book is the completion of a three year project. It is an articulation of the English countryside around me and man’s influence upon it. This resource divides opinion, but has great benefits and beauty in equal measure.

                                        The book is split into different sections:

  Majesty: looking at the sheer beauty of the English countryside

Rowley Hill 2014
Rowley Hill 2014

Texture: a journey through the complexity of texture, rhythm and flow in flora and fauna

Ashdon Road Chalk Pit 2015

Dark: moving forward creatively towards expression at its limits

Little Walden Aerodrome 2014

Owner: using historical context to define land tenure

Fringelands: the results of when man and the countryside collide

                                                         How you can help?

Vista is now at its final stages of development. The images and text are arranged ready to be published by Harts of Saffron Walden. They are a renowned printing company with a long history and fine reputation.

I have published before and have an established a set of trusted contacts. They will be used to sell the book.

I currently have a public exhibition of prints from VISA showing at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge UK

To help me finalise the project I require £350 in total to achieve a limited print run of 30 pieces, 28 hardback and 2 special limited editions hardback entitled ‘Vista Echoes’. Publishing date is March 2016. UK shipping is free and world wide shipping is available at extra cost. By helping you can own a future investment and be part of a contemporary photo book experience that is important in so many ways.

                                                                 Get involved

Vista is not just a book it's a way of thinking. For the length of the project I have set up a specific webpage www.twardpw.co.uk It will feature competitions, updates, ideas and a blog on the project. Your participation is essential so see you there. Remember we ALL own the landscape! 

Risks and challenges

Any book is a challenge. But with my track record and the fact that the full book is arranged and ready to send to the publishers. I would hope there will be no issues. If their are I can work quickly to rectify them. I have chosen a local publishers with a long history and great products. They already sell my first publication and we have a great working relationship.
I shall keep in contact with any backers on a weekly basis to ensure transparency.
