Event description

Description

Colin Prior gained recognition as a photographer, naturalist and conservationist. His career in photography began in 1981 when he won best newcomer to underwater photography and soon began working in the North Sea as a photo-technician. He spent the next ten years working as a commercial photographer for advertising and design agencies and in the exhibition industry.

It wasn't until 1989, when he purchased a Linhof Technorama 617S camera, that he began to develop his personal work - the panoramic format's 3:1 ratio fascinated him like no other. His photographs capture sublime moments of light and land, which are the result of meticulous planning and preparation and often take years to achieve. Prior is a photographer who seeks out patterns in the landscape and the hidden links between reality and imagination.

In a career spanning thirty-five years, he travelled to over forty countries and lived alone for extended periods of time to pursue his subjects. He has produced seven books that include The World's Wild Places and Living Tribes, which were published internationally and recently completed a four-year project in Pakistan's Karakoram Mountains. His current project, Fragile, explores the habitats of wild birds and their vulnerability to change. Colin was recently the subject of two BBC documentaries entitled Mountain Man.
