Natural Cosmic

2020

A series for Photo London 2020. For a long time I have looked for intense, peaceful moments in landscape. This desire has led me to plenty of places in the British Isles. For the most part I have gravitated to woodlands, rivers and salt marsh, generally avoiding higher ground. The reason for this is not because I dislike a good view, but rather because this camera and lens has a fantastic ability to make you feel you are part of the scene you are photographing, and that’s more achiecavble when you are down there amongst it. It’s to do with perspective perhaps; the complicated relationships between foreground and background.

'Cadmium Orange on Blue'



In these new pictures I want to see how far I can pursue the idea of immersion in a ‘place’ when looking at vast open spaces of simply air water and cosmic activity.

They are all taken close to home overlooking the North Sea at moments of intensely high atmospheric pressure.
