Photographer and church-spotter David Stanford, author of Suffolk Churches and Essex Churches, now turns his attention to Norfolk, presenting 50 more churches from the county, chosen for their beauty or historical or anecdotal interest, in a series of captivating photographic portraits. The wide selection includes the eccentric confection that is St Michael and All Saints Booton, described by Lutyens as 'very naughty but in the right spirit', St Andrew Gunton, designed by Robert Adam, St Helen Ranworth, known as 'the Cathedral of the Broads' and the mysterious Red Mound Chapel at Kings Lynn.

David Stanford's atmospheric photography captures the spirit of these unique buildings as architectural heritage, as historic monuments and as places of Christian devotion.
In the 1960s, David Stanford started out studying Painting and History of Art at Walthamstow School of Art alongside such figures as Ian Dury, Vivian Stanshall and Peter Greenaway. On graduation from the Royal College of Art, he established his own photographic studio, photographing a number of famous bands for album sleeves. Over the next 25 years, he shot a wide range of high-profile advertising campaigns and fashion spreads for magazines in London and Paris. He specialized in fashion and beauty, but also managed to cover everything from cars to wars, and even directed a number of TV commercials and film documentaries. He has recently returned to painting, but still travels extensively on his personal, eclectic, photographic adventures. He has enthusiastically embraced digital photography, and very rarely now uses traditional film. He lives in East Sussex.
