Portrait of a Valley
Subtitled the Hambleden Valley in photographs, Portrait of a Valley captures the hauntingly beautiful landscape and people of the valley, at work and at play over the course of a year.
From a readers review: "Here are the people, places and events in the modern life of a unique fold in the Chiltern Hills - an invaluable evocation of its villages and valley in the first year of the new century and the third millennium.
For those who live in places like Hambleden or Fawley, Fingest or Medmenham, Skirmett, Turville or Frieth, here are familiar faces and ancient vistas. For those who visit this enchanted vale, here are comfortable taverns and quiet times.
For all who cherish the Chilterns, here are timeless faces and places - a vision and a waking dream of near meadows, still stream and rolling hillside."
Portrait of a Shoot
Caroline's latest book Portrait of a Shoot is a behind the scenes look at the traditional sport of pheasant shooting, the livelihoods derived from it, and the effect on conservation and wildlife.
A review from the Editor of The Shooting Gazette. '' By speaking to and photographing game farmers, shoot managers, beaters, picker-ups, shoot owners and gamekeepers, Caroline has been able to assemble a terrific testament to game shooting. Not only does the large format book look good with its 125 excellent images but for a book with remarkably little text, it is surprisingly informative. The overall impression reflects how much pleasure shooting gives to so many people''.
''When you have been a shooting guest, it is a good idea to send a small gift to say thank you....I have already found the ideal present for the coming season. It is a stunning book of photographs, Portrait of a Shoot by Caroline Hyman'' - Mrs Moneypenny weekend columnist for the Financial Times.
''This is a delightful book which will do much to explain the sport, and also place it in the overall context of the countryside'' - Kate Hoey MP, Chairman of the Countryside Alliance.
