DEAN HEARNE Photographer It was while travelling in the US and Australia in 2000 with photographer friends that Dean’s passion for photography began: ‘I bought a second-hand Canon T90 and they taught me to use it – a priceless education.’ Dean captured the Knepp Estate for this issue, from page 69: ‘Being able to wander at dusk among the wildlife was spectacular.’ He also photographed Bill Amberg’s recommendations in Somerset, on pages 134-135.

More recent Dundonian creations include The Beano, marmalade, aspirin and the video game Grand Theft Auto. So strong is its relationship with design that, in 2014, it became the first city in the UK to receive Unesco City of Design status. The V&A Dundee is Scotland’s first design museum.
