Norfolk based photographer steps into the light
First book of photography from Jon Clifton.
Published this October, Into the Light is the first book of photography from Norfolk based photographer Jon Clifton, in association with FBS Publishing Ltd.
They say every picture tells a story, Into the Light not only illustrates the beauty of the North Norfolk coast, it also documents what was a transitional period for Jon. Following a turbulent period in his life during 2010 and a move from London to Norfolk, photography and the Norfolk coast became a source of therapy for him. Helping him to restore and recover his mental well being.
The photographs span a seven-year period from 2011 to 2018 featuring landscapes, the sea and the big Norfolk skies. All of the photographs were taken in north and west Norfolk and highlight the beauty and isolation of this part of the world.
Into the Light presents full page, landscape, colour and monochrome images in a beautiful hardback presentation. A perfect reminder of what people love about the Norfolk coast, it is sure to strike a chord with those who have visited and those who reside in the region. Snettisham, Brancaster, Thornham, Hunstanton and many other areas of natural beauty have been captured by Jon and his camera.
Visitors to Jon’s website are able to pre-order signed copies, the book has an official publication date of 6th October. It will also be available in shops along the coast and will also be available from Jon himself, at the various craft and gift events he attends.
Over 100 sponsors kindly supported the production of this book. Jon wanted them to be ‘part of the art’ and they have all chosen a name to be printed in the book. This has raised over £300 for a local mental health charity.
Jon hopes that this book gives people the opportunity to reflect on the natural beauty of nature and the area. He also hopes that the images will help others in the way they have helped him and to allow them a moment of peace and a knowledge that if going through difficult times, things can and do get better.
Into the Light is a celebration and meditation on the beauty of the natural landscape and a chance to reflect on positive times.
