2015 CALENDAR

EDWIN SMITH BRITISH LANDSCAPES

All:

‘You can’t fault Edwin Smith’s eye. There’s not a single photograph in the RIBA’s extensive collection that is not beautifully composed. So to choose just 12 for this calendar was a personal, intuitive process. These are my choices. Each spoke directly to me, each happens to be a British landscape. The way he captures the spirit of place takes me right there. I love that he chose subjects that seem modest, even unpromising, then transformed them with technical assurance and vision. His images of Britain have a truth I recognise and feel at one with.’
– Margaret Howell
