New Book Illustrates Huron County

17 Aug

The landscapes, communities and lifestyles of Huron County are featured in 167 colour photos inside a fabulous 128 page photo book entitled “The Beauty and Bounty of Huron County”. This volume is the third  hard cover photo book published by T. Wegg Photography, a regional publisher who specializes in books which expand the understanding and appreciation of rural Ontario.

Beauty-and-Bounty-of-Huron-CountySections in the book highlight aerial photos, wildlife images and views relating to Huron’s productive and varied agricultural foundation. In addition, an extensive segment is devoted to the rural landscapes, historic towns and quiet villages that are a particular attraction of Huron County. The volume thus becomes a comprehensive visual survey that will serve as a treasured keepsake and a valuable resource for both residents and visitors.

The photo collection is a collaboration of three photographers. Telfer Wegg is known from previous books and publications featuring his images of rural Ontario. Contributors David Bishop and Bonnie Sitter are Huron County photographers whose systematic explorations of back roads and byways with their cameras have enabled them to capture dramatic visions of Huron County seldom seen by casual observers.

Coming Soon: Huron County Photo Book

10 Jun

IMG_3323The Art aRound Town Gallery at the Welcome Centre in Exeter changes monthly, so I stopped by this past week to see what was new. Artist Bonnie Sitter showed me around and shared some exciting news that she is helping to put together a coffee table book of photography across Huron County. The 128-page book will be called “The Beauty and Bounty of Huron County” and feature photography by David Bishop, Telfer Wegg, as well as Bonnie, who are all featured artists in the Gallery this month.

The book will be divided into four sections: Huron from the Air, Agriculture, Flora and Fauna, and Out and About and will retail for $40. I have yet to see the book, but it sounds like it would be a great gift for photography lovers or history buffs, a family keepsake for residents, or a unique housewarming gift for newcomers to the area. Watch for the book which is coming out this July. Who knows, a photo of you or someone you know may be in the book!
