"To many, Paris is known as the “City of Love,” that’s a sentiment I’m sure many of you share, myself included. One can’t fail to be influenced by evocative images from screen or print, which have shaped our perception of this beautiful city, especially those stunning images of Paris portrayed at night. Having spent many an evening strolling around this beautiful city with my wife Linda, it’s almost impossible not to endorse the fact. Paris is transformed into a spectacular array of colour and light, with many of its Iconic buildings and Avenues brought to life, the Eiffel Tower, Sacré-Coeur, Arc de Triomphe, Musée du Louvre, Notre-Dame, sit along with their contempories in the business district such as the Grande Arche de la Défense and the Pompidou centre. The Avenue Champs-Élysées at night, transformed into a sea of moving light, as are the numerous other avenues and ancient cobbled streets, which make up the 14 districts of Paris. No wonder Paris is dubbed La Ville Lumière (“City of Lights”)."

Extract from Paris Illuminated by Peter Hendrie, Copyright 2009

Peter has previously published 3 books, which concentrate on the area in which he has lived and worked all his life. Exmoor Moods, published in 2002 shows his camera lens reaching beyond the obvious to catch the essence of Exmoor in its endless variety and myriad of moods. North Devon Moods was published in 2003 and shows that there is more to this area than the well known images of chocolate box villages and dramatic imposing coastline, with much of the area remaining wild and rugged, as if untouched by man. The photos in the book depict the solitude, spectacle, intimacy and sweeping vistas of this ever-changing landscape. 2007 saw the publication of An Exmoor Panorama, presenting Peters stunning images in large-scale panoramic format. For the first time in published form, his exceptional work was displayed in a book made to fit the image rather than the other way around. The depth and quality of each picture was realised in this mouth-watering volume, claimed to be perhaps the most stunning ever to appear on this incomparable place known as Exmoor.
