wild london, DISCOVERing LONDON'S HIDDEN PARKS, GARDENS AND WILD NATURE
Andrew Wilson is a publisher and photographer; a resident of Putney, which he loves, he photographs the beauty found all around us. Nature is never far away as far as Andrew is concerned and our glorious open spaces are a constant feature throughout his work; he's often seen in the company of his springer spaniel Josie, who features in every book. Passionate about photography, he runs a thriving photography club – the Putney Satellite for London Independent Photography. He is also an active member of The Friends of Barnes Common, for whom he volunteers and sits on their committee.
As well as his own work, Andrew is helping another South West London resident and photographer, Joanna Jackson, publish her work and they have so far collaborated on A Year in the Life of Bushy Park and A Year in the Life of Kingston-upon-Thames.
Unity Print and Publishing specialises in producing high quality coffee table style photographic books. Devised by Andrew Wilson, it has to date published 16 books, its most successful being Wild about Barnes, which is now in its third edition. Each of the books take around 18 months to produce and are essentially a year in the life of the towns or villages featured; with all the seasons at your fingertips, you can amble through the places at their most beautiful. The accompanying editorial, put together by local historians, helps put all the pictures into their proper context in a light and often amusing way. The Wild About series is ever expanding, with more coming in the next few years.
