Colin Prior

Colin Prior is one of Britain's leading, and possibly best known, landscape photographers. Over the past 25 years his fascination with the transient nature of the landscape, and the indigenous culture of the lands he has visited, has helped to generate some memorable and award-winning images. His real talent is in his ability to capture those rare moments, the exact point at which the play of light and shadow on the colour and texture of the landscape illuminates a connection between the viewer and nature. "That connection with a wild place results in powerful imagery. You've got to connect. Nature has this frequency, and once you can tune into it, it can change every aspect of our life."

"I think we are very lucky at this time because we can travel relatively cheaply to these wild places, and there is still wildlife to see. In the course of time, environmental change will have a negaitve effect on wildlife and those ecosystems."
