Early Exposures (Bill Pennell)
Early Exposures: A Photographic Memoir chronicles the travels of photographer Bill Pennell to five exotic parts of the world: Wales, Borneo, Mauritius, the interior of British Columbia, and the Canadian West Coast. Remembering his journey through stunning black-and-white photography as well as colourful personal accounts, Pennell covers a ten-year period in his late twenties and early thirties (1969 to1979). With a keen eye guiding his large-format view camera as well as a Leica 35mm, Pennell offers a detailed and unique visual perspective. This informative historical travelogue shows what life was like in these far-flung places during the mid-twentieth century. A highly personal memoir, Early Exposures offers a one-of-a-kind journey into the mind and heart of a true explorer.
