James Ravilious: A Life

  • £12.99
James Ravilious trained as an artist, like his father Eric, but a Cartier-Bresson exhibition converted him to photography, which he taught himself. In 1972, a move to his wife Robin's homeland - a very rural, unspoilt part of North Devon - inspired him. He devoted himself to recording daily life in that part of old England before it was modernised. He made a uniquely detailed portrait, intimate and sympathetic, of a whole way of life in one small piece of countryside: its landscapes, its seasons, its people, their hardships and their pleasures.
