Homage is a collection of 80 of my best images made in Botswana between 2002 and 2013 when I lived there. It marks the end of a wonderful period of my life, living and working in the wilderness of Northern Botswana.
The book is, in itself, a piece of art. This oversized collector’s edition of the book consists of 80 monochrome plates, beautifully printed under my personal supervision, on a specially sourced uncoated matte art paper. This paper has a wonderful tactile quality to it and holds the ink exceptionally well, ensuring the subtle tonality of his prints is accurately reproduced. Printed with only one image per page, there is no room for distraction, drawing the viewer into an immersive journey through imagery. The book is bound in linen, with embossed titles and a tipped on cover print. It is presented in a protective slipcase.
The publication this book was made possible through the very generous involvement of The Malcolm Ainscough Collection and through this organisation, 50% of net proceeds from sales of Homage is donated directly to various carefully selected conservation organisations.
