Leading photographer, Tony McGee, has created a beautiful new book 'Swans and I Dream' with all proceeds going to the Winnicott Foundation.
The book showcases the beauty of the swan, featuring up close photographs that encapsulate the swans incredible power, construction and grace. Shot entirely by moonlight "Swans and I Dream" renders the unseen stillness and purity of each creature.
Tony commented "I am delighted to be able to share the beautiful photography through my new book, "Swans and I Dream". Swans are truly beautiful creatures and it was fascinating to be able to be able to watch them at night and capture true moments of grace. It is important that we are working with the Winnicott Foundation, an independent charity that works to improve care for premature and sick babies."
