Surrey Landscapes contains more than 40 full colour images, with descriptive captions, from around Surrey throughout the seasons. Celebrating both the popular hot-spots and less well-known corners of the county, each image not only has a story to tell, but is also a call from the countryside to those who want to see more. There are no other landscape photography books celebrating the breadth of Surrey’s natural spaces, so this collection of images, bringing together work from the last two years into one unique coffee-table book, is a perfect keepsake or gift for anyone who enjoys the county’s countryside and landscape photography.
The foreword is written by one of the world’s leading landscape photographers, Charlie Waite who is not only an iconic photographer but also founder of the UK Landscape Photographer of the Year competition, now in its 13th year. He also runs Europe’s largest photographic tour company, Light and Land, and is a prolific author.
The author, landscape photographer Nick Oakley, who lives in Hindhead Surrey, is inspired by the diverse beauty of the natural world and passionate about sharing his photography. His photo galleries have been curated from images captured on travels around the British Isles and the world. Priced at £20, the coffee-table book is released on April 21.

Audrey Hepburn is the subject of a new documentary made by the BAFTA-nominated team behind McQueen.

In homage of Heburn’s love of ballet, three acclaimed dancers will enact her different life stages. Francesca Hayward will play ‘Hollywood eraAudrey’ at the height of her fame, Alessandra Ferri plays Audrey in her later years and the film also introduces Keira Moore as ‘Young Audrey’, who the production found through an audition process at ballet schools.
G2’s perennial Little Book of Audrey Hepburn (£7.99) is being re-promoted to tie in with the launch of the blockbuster documentary.
