'Northern Exposures' brings together the long-term documentation of rural life in North East England Chris Steele Perkins. From grouse shooting and whippet racing to blood-stained slaughterhouses and country vandalism, Northern Exposures is a no-holes-barred account of exurban culture. His photographs, he says, 'serve as both eulogy and elegy'. As such, Steele-Perkins book acts as both a celebration and mourning of a culture under threat from the materialistic distractions of technology and modernity.
