A new book to celebrate the friendship of master photographers James Ravilious and Chris Chapman who both embarked on their careers in Devon 50 years ago.

With a Foreword by Michael Morpurgo this book presents – for the first time together – a selection of the finest photographs of North Devon and Dartmoor by James Ravilious and Chris Chapman dating back to the 1970s. It also includes a specially recorded conversation between Chris Chapman and James’s daughter, Ella Ravilious, and an essay by Professor Mark Haworth-Booth, Honorary Research Fellow, Victoria and Albert Museum


‘’Glimpses of a pastoral life to be treasured, the visionary work of two great photographers. Every page of this wonderful book a revelation and a joy, a memory stirred.’
