A Life of Birds and Fish (Book)
Red Hare Publishing have been working with sculptor Stephen Henderson to create this fabulous book. With a collection of Stephen's favourite wood carvings and a handful of evocative photographs of the habitat around his studio on the Walton Backwaters, this book could be the ideal purchase for anyone interested in art and landscape.
Stephen Henderson grew up among intensely artistic surroundings. The youngest of four children, he is the son of renowned photographer and pop-artist Nigel Henderson. Stephen's mother Judith was raised in and around the Bloomsbury Group, as a niece of Virginia Woolf. The family moved to the East Essex coast in the 1950s, with Stephen being born shortly afterwards in 1956. Stephen’s teenage years were spent shooting and fishing on the marshes where he developed a keen eye for the movements and habits of wildfowl and fish. Even today, the workshop and studio at his family home look out across those very same marshes, providing a constant source of inspiration.
