My landscape photography has its source in the rhythms and cycles inherent in nature. Perhaps inevitably the photographs address the human impact on the natural world and its cycles. Each series of photographs highlight the importance of conservation, heritage and local history. The photographs focus on the beauty of both our natural and patrimonial heritage.
These are long-term projects during which I capture the four seasons in a selected region. I have sought to equip local communities with the tools to promote and enhance their towns, making them better places to live, work and relax. The images present the countryside as a vital space for recreation, reflection and as a home for nature, preserved for current and future generations.
I returned time and again throughout the seasons to these places, keeping in mind my forebears’ phrase “The hours shall be passed toiling in the field”.
