'End of an Era'- (Another) Book Review!

It gives me great pleasure to review the book 'End of an Era' from Robert Hughes LRPS a fellow member of The Leica Society.In a large publication - 8x12 inches- he has produced a fine record of the last days of Abergavenny Livestock Market prior to its closure on it's traditional site and relocation. Executed,in the main, in the traditional Leica format it is a worthy candidate to break the rule of this Blog by introducing a Digital element as the book was compiled using Leica M Digital and D-Lux cameras.

This is an excellent work in the tradition of Leica Photojournalism and it is acknowledged by Robert in his notes that he was inspired by the late James Ravilious which comes over strongly in the rural settings he has chosen.Delightfully produced by Country Books it is a fine example of the Leica genre.

A fine Christmas gift for any follower of black and white photography and available now at £20, Robert's web address is

Apologies to Robert , in advance, for the poor quality of reproduction on this site which is due to me entirely and in no way reflects the quality of the book!
