Scarborough, North Yorkshire (PRWEB UK) 11 November 2012
North Yorkshire landscape photographer Tom Tolkien has released an 80 page lustre art book 'Mirages' celebrating the vivid and varied landscapes and seascapes of Yorkshire, Cornwall, Tenerife and Gran Canaria.
Compiled over two years, the work includes panoramic spreads, abstract photography and compressed telephoto work; as well as more traditional photographic landscapes.
Tolkien drew his inspiration for the book from his home surroundings in North Yorkshire. 'There's always something to photograph here. Whether it's the North Yorks Moors landscapes or seascapes around Scarborough or Bridlington, there's an abundance of creative opportunity. I moved to North Yorkshire in 2004 for a teaching job and living and working here rekindled my love of photography. Landscapes in Yorkshire are inherently emotive and nothing ever looks the same twice.'
Tom Tolkien's images have been used by the BBC, National Trust, Huffington Post, GardenDesign.com, Wikipedia, Pollensa Tourisma, Dunas Hotels & Resorts, Real Yorkshire (Hull and East Yorkshire Tourism), B92.net (Croatia) and Frommers (Pauline Frommer)
The book 'Mirages' is available in a standard edition, a deluxe art paper edition or a kindle and iPad compatible eBook edition.
