An Eye on the World by David Peat

Published by The Watermill, in memory of photographer and film-maker David Peat. The Watermill Gallery held the first exhibition of David's street photography Through the Looking Glass shortly before cancer claimed his life in 2012, The exhibition received coverage worldwide and is the inspiration for this book.

During his travels as an award-winning documentary film cameraman he would often wander off with his camera. These images above all showed a unique ability to 'capture' his subject without intruding, and a superb attention to details of composition that make photographs artistic images.

Images range from shadows on the walls of Sydney Opera house to the streets of Ecuador and street parades in Barcelona to the stern looks of two women in Mallorca.

Sunshine and snow

Posted: Sat 14th Jan

Life is good It's a wonderful crisp, sunny, snowy day here at The Watermill. The baristas are working to a soundtrack of mellow jazz and the coffee smells fantastic. People stamp the snow off their boots as they come in and either go down for a cup of something warming or upstairs for a wander through the gallery or set about having a serious browse among the books. A customer is in a comfy chair between the poetry section and Thrillers having a quiet read. Life is good!!
