Derelict Details

A Kent based photographer, I have been exploring the landscape for many years, initially using film, but now I work is largely digital, although I revert to the view camera when time allows. Currently completing a photography degree course as a very mature student, which is forcing me to examine why I make photographs and the meaning in my work.



I've been photographing Dungeness and the decline of its traditional fishing industry for the last 20 years. Lately, I've become fascinated with the effect of time and the weather on the fabric of the derelict boats and net huts.

These images are details from one of the much photographed net huts taken in April this year.
