The Light and the Land

Photographer Bruce Percy travels the globe to remote places to seek unusual blends of the light and landscapes. His stunning collections of portraits and scenes are, as he says, “a great way of getting closer to the land in a way that I wouldn't ordinarily experience. It has made the joy of travel much more satisfying for me.”
