In The Woods
I graduated with an MFA in Fine art from the University of Reading in 2001. Now living in my native North East of England I have made a journey from painting to photography. I love the clarity of northern light and concentrate on the intimate details in the landscape. Most recently I have begun to work mainly in black and white using a large format camera.
I love the area where I live on the border between Northumberland and Tyne and Wear. It feels like a duty to give a true and authentic representation of the beauty of the area. These images are the record of walks though local woodland as such they are the documentation of a process of contemplation. They represent a strand in my work which seeks out the shapes cast by trees where they can exist as both bodies and abstract forms, and light both enhances details and creates stark shadows.
