What do Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso have in common? What links the Theory of Relativity and quantum mechanics with art and creativity? When does the comic fiction of Douglas Adams become scientific truth? How do our children’s questions encourage us to examine ourselves and our life’s purpose?
These are some of the questions wildlife photographer Chris Weston grapples with on his journey to discover what compels him, and others, to pick up a camera and make beautiful art.
It is a journey that started in the marshes of southern France and ventured beyond to Africa, Asia, the Americas and the icy wildernesses of the polar regions, and one he has skilfully documented in forty-four fine art photographs – a collection of evocative images that, together, tell us that creativity is not a gift of genius, it is a gift of life and it resides in all of us.
A master storyteller, whose fine art prints are collected by private clients around the world and exhibited in the Marylebone Gallery, London, Weston reveals how, by unshackling ourselves of the fetters of fear and expectation that restrain us to espouse instead a life led by significance, we may rise above expectation and choose to walk among the best who ever lived.
