Paul Nash was 41 in 1930 when his wife Margaret gave him a Kodak pocket camera; between then and his death in 1946, Nash took around 1,200 photographs. Some were snapshots, some were studies for paintings, most display what fellow artist John Piper described as Nash’s ‘economical and obsessive’ eye. This book explores this aspect of the artist’s work, with 138 photographs depicting subjects as varied as standing stones, wrecked aircraft, fallen trees and the White Horse at Uffington.
