The water’s movement reinvigorated my photography, but also changed the way that I look at the land. The appeal of the conventional diminished. For all the care taken and whatever the merit of the light both vistas and details seem somehow lacking. I began to experiment and to apply some of the techniques I use to photograph water on the land. As photographers we tend to go to extremes – short shutter speeds to freeze the moment, or long exposures of several minutes. The new land that interests me is the area in between.
I am equally happy at the water’s edge or in woodland – both offer tranquility and an escape from everyday life. The images here reflect the curiosity that the river has inspired in my practice. Here you will find motion and layers, interpretation and impression, in-camera images as individual as nature itself.
