Fantastic images captured in Richmond Park by Putney photographer
Alex Saberi is a photographer who lives in Putney and his forthcoming solo exhibition ‘Park life’ is an amazing array of image of our neighbours living in Richmond Park.
In this beautiful book, Alex Saberi captures Richmond Park's unique blend of rare and diverse wildlife, plant life and rolling landscapes. Alex rose every day before dawn for a year to unlock the secret world of London's majestic wildlife.
The stunning scenes, which occur right under the noses of the eight million people living in the capital, were captured on camera in a series of incredible pictures. From a crow perching on a bench in the morning haze to a foolhardy Labrador, breaking impatiently away from its owner, the photographs capture its inherent beauty as well as those rare moments of wildlife action and majesty that only yield themselves to the most patient and knowledgeable of observers.
Alex told PutneySW15.com: "I remember Richmond Park from when I was a child. My mum and friends parents used to take us there to have picnics and play. I moved very close to the park in Roehampton and had just taken up photography as a hobby. The first autumn I was there early in the morning just blew me away. I loved the fact that I was one of the only people up to see nature at its best. With the mists and the amazing light over the lakes in in the forests, and added to that majestic stags and swans. It wasn't that hard getting up early when I knew I could look out of my window and see the conditions were right. I would just cycle in the park and never knew what I was going to get."
