“It’s about reacting to what you see. Hopefully without preconception. You can find pictures anywhere. It’s simply a matter of noticing things and organizing them. You just have to care about what’s around you and have a concern with humanity and the human comedy.”

Elliott Erwitt

The Floating City

Whenever the jetty fountains splash into the marble basins, they seem to me to be telling the story of the floating city. Yes, the spouting water may tell of her, the waves of the sea may sing of her fame! On the surface of the ocean a mist often rests, and that is her widow’s veil. The bridegroom of the sea is dead, his palace and his city are his mausoleum! Dost thou know this city? She has never heard the rolling of wheels or the hoof-tread of horses in her streets, through which the fish swim, while the black gondola glides spectrally over the green water. “I will show you the place,” continued the Moon, “the largest square in it, and you will fancy yourself transported into the city of a fairy tale.”

Hans Christian Andersen

Wintertide

“Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer – and often the supreme disappointment.”

Ansel Adams

The Fisherman

"Maybe a twelve-month since 
Suddenly I began, 
In scorn of this audience, 
Imagining a man, 
And his sun-freckled face 
And gray Connemara cloth, 
Climbing up to a place 
Where stone is dark with froth, 
And the down turn of his wrist 
When the flies drop in the stream— 
A man who does not exist, 
A man who is but a dream; 
And cried, “Before I am old 
I shall have written him one 
Poem maybe as cold 
And passionate as the dawn.”

“The aim of art is to present not the outward appearance of things, but their inner significance; for this, not the external manner and detail, constitutes true reality”

Aristotle

Birds

As a child I often wondered what it would be like to be a bird. Whilst I can never know the answer to this childhood fancy, I enjoy observing their splendour in nature. Only rarely do I make an image that is more than a memento mori and worth showing here.

Sadly, once abundant species are frequently finding their way onto the amber or, worse still, the red watch lists. Here they seem to languish for a while before quietly fading away. How can we call this progress?

“I began to realise that the camera sees the world differently than the human eye and that sometimes those differences can make a photograph more powerful than what you actually observed.”

Galen Rowel

Asia

As a young man Asia always fascinated me; the people, the culture, the history and, yes, the food! I count the decade I lived and travelled amongst Asia’s people as the happiest period of my life. This is where photography and, later, art grew to become my obsession. I was insatiable. Cartier-Bresson underestimated the role of luck when he said, “Your first 10000 photographs are your worst”.

“Photographs open doors into the past, but they also allow a look into the future.”

Sally Mann

Black Cotton

Silently I bore witness to moments of tenderness, playfulness, sorrow or connection between animals going about their daily lives. These moments happen between the intensity and the drama of life on the savanna; in them we see a glimpse of humanity. These are the moments that I sought out and brought back.

“There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment.”
