cover225x225Ken Purkiss – 50 Photos

John Purkiss and Robert Coggins

In the 1950s Ken Purkiss was one of Britain’s leading field sports photographers. He photographed beagling, fox hunting and otter hunting from East Anglia to Devon, and from the New Forest to Cumberland. Ken’s work appeared in a wide range of books and magazines. 50 Photos includes many of these images. Others are published here for the first time. This is a poignant record of rural life in the fifties. Some of these photos challenge our assumptions. Others capture the beauty of the countryside or the joy of the moment.
