WESTON-SUPER-MARE: MY HOME TOWN

Posted on March 5, 2017

Weston-super-Mare: My Home Town is a collection of striking black and white photographs by award-winning photographer Alex Wolfe-Warman. Having spent years photographing his favourite places – those many of us walk past and take for granted – Alex reveals a Weston beyond the obvious and pays homage to its beauty.

 

Published by Bristol Books this beautiful hard-back book comprises 57 stunning images across 128 pages.

 

Alex was born in Weston in 1965 where he lived until he was seventeen. In 2007 he returned after 25 years.

 

Some of the photographs were made while he was walking his dogs. Others were made by regularly returning to the location and waiting for the right conditions.

 

Uphill, Brean Down, Sand Point, Marine Lake and the beaches offer great walks and superb views, the light is often very beautiful.

 

Alex prefers to do as much as possible in-camera whilst keeping post production to minimum. He rarely crops his photographs and he does not make composite images.

 

Signed copies of the book are available to purchase direct from the photographer. Click here for more details.

 

A book launch is planned for Thursday 30th March in Weston-super-Mare at Loves, featuring a Q&A session with Alex.
