Photography is an intensely personal artistic activity for me, a chance to express myself and to try and convey the connection I have with the subject, be that the natural landscape, a cityscape or a still life. While I’ve taken photographs for many years, starting off fumbling in the dark, quite literally, developing and printing black and white film, I find I am more drawn to the process of making the image than ever. As a geologist, exploration of landscape, its many overlapping layers modified over immense periods of time and humankind’s influence on that landscape, resonates particularly deeply with me. I work mainly, though not exclusively in monochrome – I like the inherently surreal nature of monochrome photography and the artistic process involved from the taking of the initial photograph through to the final ‘print’.
