About this book

In The Northumberland Coast acclaimed photographer Joe Cornish records his visual impressions of a landscape that has enchanted him: its vast sandy bays and some of the most beautiful beaches in England, great castles such as Dunstanburgh and Bamburgh that are windswept memorials to a bygone age, the Holy Island of Lindisfarne with its compelling tidal causeway, fishing boats, colonies of seabirds, and uncommercialized coastal towns and villages. Supported by a commentary that blends recollections with historical anecdotes, his photographs capture the region's subtle beauty, intimacy and space.

"Cornish's images of this unspoilt shore are full of subtle colour, atmospheric light and feathery textures. It's a book to gaze at and be transported by."
- Coast

"To bring this beauty to life takes a special eye and a brilliant talent. Thanks then to the photographer Joe Cornish. In fact, please take a bow Joe, for in your recent book you have brought together a glorious collection of photographic scenes that will surely move all of us who have a knowledge, however intimate or fleeting, of this gloriously remarkable coastline, and perhaps equally significantly, inspire those of you who have yet to appreciate its glorious temperament."
- Living North

"A well-crafted collection of images that capture Northumberland's special atmosphere as well as its many and varied charms."
- Amateur Photographer

"His photographic journey covers many subjects familiar to Northumbrian readers but it is given added dimension and impact by compositional perfection and quality of light."
- Northumbrian

"A fine example of the breed – few could do this type of photography better [3 stars]"
- BBC Countryfile
