In 2012 I paused by my local river and everything changed. I’ve moved away from what many expect photographs to be: my images deconstruct the literal and reimagine the subjective, reflecting the curiosity that water has inspired in my practice. Water has been my conduit: it has sharpened my vision, given me permission to experiment and continues to introduce me to new ways of seeing.


There can be many reasons why we first pick up a camera, but sooner or later it takes us on a journey.  A relatively recent traveller is North American landscape photographer Valerie Millett.  You should not delude yourself over her apparent speed of travel, however effective her use of social media.  Behind the development in her image making lies a firm determination to better herself, and a considerable amount of hard work.  She is now carefully forging a path of her own choosing, travelling at her own pace.  You may have come across her blog which reveals that she is as comfortable with words as with images, however created.  A mix of apt quotations and her own words tell of a developing dialogue with land and light and reveal something of the soul of this particular photographer.
