Forty years of photos in new book

David PittA NEW book of photographs taken all over the world over 40 years by a renowned Shandon photographer and film maker is now on sale.

David Peat, who died from cancer on April 12 2012 aged 65, was involved in the early stages of planning the book and selected many of his favourite photographs to be included.

Trish Peat, David’s wife, said: “Sadly, David never saw the book, called 'An Eye on the World', but he had an idea what it would look like. He would be very pleased to know that it had come to fruition.

“David was a film director, and his work took him all over the world and he took the opportunity to photograph people in places as diverse as Paris and Ecuador. These are the pictures that are in the book, which is David’s second. They show not only his skill at capturing the moment, but often his great humour and compassion.”

David's Retrospective Exhibition at Glasgow’s Street Level Gallery in the summer of 2012 was very successful and was voted one of the top exhibitions of the year by List magazine.

Helensburgh man David Bruce worked hard to help Trish bring the book project to publication. It is 152 pages hardback, with 70 black and white photographs, and costs £20. It can be ordered online from the publisher, The Watermill Bookshop, Mill Street, Aberfeldy, PH15 2BG, and is available locally from Ardardan or from Trish on 01436-820084.
