Upland: Shropshire's Long Mynd and the Stiperstones
The Long Mynd and the Stiperstones ridge make up the largest area of heathland in the Shropshire Hills - Upland is a celebration of this beautiful area, which is one of the unsung wonders of the UK.
Andrew Fusek Peters was originally commissioned by the National Trust and Natural England to produce a photographic record of the flora and fauna of the Long Mynd and the Stiperstones. However, his work soon expanded beyond the scope of the initial project, as he found himself drawn further into Upland's many stories.
Upland is an exploration of this beautiful and fragile area: its landscape, flora and fauna, the magic of the region captured through his lens, and its story depicted with passion and lyricism by a man who lives and breathes the landscape.
