18th January to 2nd March 2013

Venue: Sock Gallery

A celebration of the natural world by Photographer John Beatty.

John’s work is chiefly concerned with the timeless rhythms of the natural environment, its beauty and simplicity, and man’s place within it. Amongst contemporary British nature, travel and adventure photographers, his international reputation is based on a vast portfolio of extraordinary nature, travel and adventure images from around the world that celebrate the variety and magnificence of wild landscapes. John’s presentations, exhibitions (and book of the same name) WILD VISION, A Celebration of the Natural World, showcases his experiences and reveals a world infused with adventure, surprises and wonder.

Notable major expeditions include seven months spent in Antarctica, a winter in Spitzbergen, a 400 mile unsupported sled traverse of the Greenland Icecap, and two weeks marooned on a remote Atlantic rock off the coast of Scotland to photographic an epic and historic seabird harvest. In April 2010 he successfully photographed the massive volcanic eruption at Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland. Recently, John has been working in Africa including encounters in the Kalahari desert with nomadic bushmen.

He lives in Hope Valley, in the heart of the Derbyshire Peak District, with his partner Jan, walking and cycling every day among his home moors when he’s not travelling more distant parts of the globe.
