As Paul Caponigro says “For a photograph to be anything other than purely a record of a scene it must reveal or expose something about the subject, evoke a feeling or capture a moment that tells a story.”
For me landscape photography is about just that, revealing, evoking the spirit, or capturing the evanescent mood and moment of a place – its power, drama, beauty or serenity, whatever I happen to feel about it at that instant.
My images are a visceral reaction to the landscape, the result of sensory immersion in the interaction of sea, sky and shore. It is the engagement of all the senses that influences how I interpret the landscape and express it visually.
“A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.” – Ansel Adams
Much of my black & white work is inspired by the dark, tempestuous, beauty and drama of the Cornish coast where the sea sculpts the far-western fringes of our island shores.
