Summer in South Georgia by Jamie Grant

Just published. A stunning photographic review of the unique landscape, wildlife and architecture of the remote sub-Antartic island of South Georgia.

Aberfeldy photographer Jamie Grant spent 50 days on the island capturing its unique landscape and architecture as chosen artist in residence for the South Georgia Heritage Trust (SGHT).

A selection of images can be seen here 

Jamie was the first photographer to be chosen as artist in residence by SGHT. While on location, he captured a rich selection of wildlife, landscape and architecture imagery to compile into a coffee table-style book.

South Georgia’s location between southern, cold Antarctic waters and warmer currents to the north make it a haven for wildlife. There are abundant bird populations, including albatrosses and King Penguins while huge breeding populations of seals occupy the beaches in the southern months and whales are increasingly spotted off the headlands. The island’s natural history is matched by a fascinating human heritage. 

Kevin Ramage, owner of The Watermill Bookshop, said: “We are delighted to be publishing this book, which will fill a gap in the market about this unique and beguiling place. Jamie Grant's previous book Winter in Glen Lyon showed what an outstanding photographer he is. His technical approach and also his feeling for remote and wild places make him the ideal person for this project.”

The book has been published in a signed, numbered edition of 600 copies. With 85 superb colour photographs it is a fascinating introduction to this unique island. Copies are £20 plus £4 delivery (UK) per order from The Watermill Bookshop 01887 822896.

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!!
