Charles March to launch his book ‘Gleann Badraig’
All photographs by Charles March
A selection of Charles March’s new photographs from his evocative book Gleann Badraig will be shown at the Tristan Hoare gallery in London’s King’s Cross this month.
Otherwise known as the 11th Duke of Richmond, Charles March has managed Goodwood – his family’s illustrious 12,000-acre estate – since 1994 and, among other successful innovations, launched the Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival.
March also has an extensive photography career stretching back more than 50 years. He worked for Stanley Kubrick on his 1975 film Barry Lyndon, shot for Harper’s Bazaar and The Sunday Times, spent 15 years working in advertising for clients such as De Beers, Levi’s and Marks & Spencer, and has prints in collections across the world, including the State Russian Museum and the Pompidou Centre in Paris.
His most recent images, featured in Gleann Badraig, were taken over the past five years on the secluded Scottish island of Jura. Using the camera as if it were a paintbrush, his photographs are fluid in their expression and movement, collectively reading like a pictorial journey.
In the book the images are presented alongside specially commissioned verse by the Kirkcaldy-based poet Ken Cockburn. The collaboration conjures up the atmosphere of the island and the extraordinary emotional effect of spending time in one of the world’s most remote locations.
‘Gleann Badraig’ is avaible now at www.distanz.de. A selection of the works will be on display at the Tristan Hoare Gallery from 21 to 22 November.
