This is the first ever retrospective of David Eustace, one of the world's leading photographers. This eclectic mix of portraiture, landscape, and social observation has been hotly anticipated by the media and public for years. The title of this book is the first line of the agency's letter to David Eustace's parents, informing them that a baby boy had been born and was available for adoption. It represents the beginning of his journey.

MEDIA REVIEWS
There is such warmth, serenity and sensitivity in David's images. They possess a timeless quality and an authenticity that is deeply reflective of the man himself. I feel privileged to have had the pleasure of working with David over the years and this gorgeous book brings back many fond memories. It reminds me of the value of great photography and the enduring power of the still image. Tony Chambers. Editor in Chief, Wallpaper Magazine. The photographs are stunning. When we first met I remember being intrigued by him as a man and his past. I felt strongly that he had captured the real me, at a very important time in my career. I've worked with him many times and it's such a pleasure. Ewan McGregor. Actor. David's work is a true reflection of him, curious, warm, garrulous and open. His view of the world is frank, honest and always positive. He is a romantic who interacts with his subjects on equal terms. The richness of his colour and the structure of his black and white work is something many photographers could learn from. Whilst a sense of unhurried patience underlies all his images. There is a lack of artifice which comes from having looked closely at what he photographs that I love. Mike Trow. Picture Editor, British Vogue. David captures the beauty and soul in all his work whether it is portraits or landscapes. He is a genius. Wendy Hinton, Photography Editor. Harrods Magazine. His work is characterised by a classic - or perhaps more precisely, modernist - finely tuned and apparently simple sensitivity to form, through lighting and composition. Beautiful and impeccably crafted, without gimmicks or trickery, his photographs transcend current style and are timeless in their depiction of the human condition. Robin Gillanders, Reader in Photography. Edinburgh Napier University. The thing I like about David's photos are the empty spaces. There's a romantic desolation about them. They're very peaceful. Tracey Emin. Artist. David Eustace is a seismograph - his portraits have a way of exposing what lies beneath the surface. Trevor Lunn. Creative Director. If great photography has the power to emotionally move the viewer then I class David as one of the greats. Enjoy this book and discover for yourselves what truly inspiring photography is all about. Caroline Metcalfe, Director of Photography. Conde Nast Traveller.
