About Roger Backhouse

I am an amateur photographer living in Worcestershire. As an academic dealing with the history of ideas, my day job revolves around words: reading other peoples’ words and then writing my own. As a non-verbal medium, photography provides a valuable break from words. Most of my landscape images are taken close to home and Godwin’s studies of the Forest of Dean, not very far away, provide one source of inspiration. I prefer working in monochrome and have recently been experimenting with infra-red.
