Individual Collected Work
@ Used with permission and thanks
The work here is in private ownership
and has been kindly donated in the spirit of Peter Anson who was likely
to gift his work to the people he met in his life and formed a bond
with. Peter also gave away a great deal of postcards with his
work which I am trying to find. The fact that his work is
found in Ferryden, Inverness, Aberdeen, Buckie and Pluscarden is not
surprising. What may be surprising is that there is a great deal
more of his work in Brittany, USA, Italy and Wales. However I will not
know this until I am contacted.
The quality of the photographs is not a major concern since I merely
want to show the work and not leave it to be taken off the site and
used. I must however, comment that he has the quality of Lowry in
his stock characters and the colour tone of the Colourists. The
subjects too preserve an old world I am sorry to write; when fishing
was in its prime and when the churches were filled with people; that is
the point of letting people see Peter's work in the spirit that it was
done, a spirit of respect for a world he knew and realised was under
threat of extinction.
I believe an exhibition of his work is long overdue.
