Wising up to things

OK, I’ve been quiet of late on account of having been very busy exhibiting in London and now in Ipswich. I have curated and organised most shows and exhibitions I have taken part in and my background dictates that things need to be planned to the nth degree and being prepared for just about anything […]

If you go down to the woods today…

I’ve been making a series ‘An Industrial Landscape’ and some of the images will be on show in the Espacio Gallery, Bethnal Green during April in the ‘Viewpoints’ exhibition along with other Rooftop Collective photographers and invited artists who are responding to our work. Consuelo Simpson is responding to my work and I keen to […]

Back on location, and a bitterly cold one at that

I have vegetated of late, not in a totally senseless coach potato sort of way but nevertheless still vegetative when compared to my normal MO. Christmas came and went and I got stuck into the post production work on the 20 latent images referred to in my last post. That was very productive and so […]

Latent images

I have been otherwise distracted of late what with work then the Christmas/New Year break complete with inappropriate large format weather systems, so it was a relief to gather 20 latent images back from the lab this week. I had forgotten how long ago November was but I was delighted to get these two images […]

Ways of nature

October was a relatively quiet month for me in photographic terms. The large format gear did not see the light of day on account of inconvenient times for low tide and singularly inclement weather. Far too much wind and rain. A week ago Monday I was up and out before sunrise, much more civilised this […]

Have I cured myself?

Hot from the the run down to Cornwall and back I was eager to get out with the Ebony as a High had settled over the East. Previously I had reported the sighting of a Kingfisher as I made some large format work on 25th August and as a result had spent several hours getting […]

The Greening

I was out and about at 0430 last Sunday in my quest to capture both the ultra low tide on the Stour and the rapidly disappearing industrial complex at Cattawade. Now that I know the site will be a railway depot servicing new Swiss trains for Greater Anglia there is no time to waste. Everyone […]

Estuarine Mud

I have written here before about my rather too many years of commuting by rail into the smoke and the highlight of my journey being the approach to Manningtree from the North. I still marvel at the presence of fragile and very rare salt-marsh so close to a toxic factory site at Cattawade. I have […]
