Inside this issue
Like a small but growing number of photographers around the world I’m exploring Analogue and Alternative Photographic processes to help me express my thoughts and feelings about the landscape that we live, work and play in. These processes help me make my prints in a uniquely personal way and where I can use my hands in today’s digital and machine centric world. I love the fact that results are not guaranteed and that sometimes serendipity plays her part in the final outcome making for truly unique handmade photographic prints.
Landscape photography is my passion and I get a huge buzz and great satisfaction when I overcome the physical challenges and mental gymnastics to successfully express my response to the NZ Landscape in my prints.
This latest work entitled Precious Landscapes uses the latest digital camera technology of the 21st century with the 19th century print making process of platinum, palladium and kallitype to help me render the extraordinary beauty and drama of these iconic and anonymous places in a personal and unique way. These analogue processes are labour intensive and influenced by many variables, some I try to control, others I leave for serendipity to play her part in influencing the end result that are my hand made and unique precious landscape prints of New Zealand.
