Inside this issue
Coast by Corrie
Kevin Bonnett lives in Sheffield but aims to be a camera-toting hobo in his camper van. Being a retired social scientist means he is drawn to mainstream humanistic and modernist traditions in photography, but he’s also afflicted with that nagging desire for self-expression and that itch to create images with ambiguity and intrigue. Just sometimes, he manages to scratch that itch successfully.
Visiting the Isle of Arran last year on a lone photo trip, I enjoyed the sea and the hills but found my highlight at dawn two miles down the coast from my hotel at Corrie. Horizontal slabs of grey and red sandstone were washed by the retreating tide, leaving a miniature landscape of ridges and pools, ambiguous in shape and scale.
