I moved to rural Aberdeenshire in March 2017 having previously lived in Hampshire for 54 years. Artistic statement The sea, and the way it moves, reflects and glows, has transfixed and inspired photographers over the years with a compelling need to capture its mood. We are drawn to the sea, perhaps by the sense of power, the perception of force and the awareness of sound. Elemental and always in a state of flux, the sea transforms in colour depending on the weather and the light. As such there is a challenge to construct new and inventive interpretations and it is this ever-changing possibilities of shore, sea and sky that engages me. My way of interpreting the coast and how I respond emotionally to it is through my photography. There is the challenge to make an experience of being at the coast for, say, an hour, into one two dimensional image. How can we capture the form and beauty, the sound, the power, the energy, the wild wind, the smell, the sting of the salt? Awards Since 2005 I have been the recipient of various photographic awards including Outdoor Photographer of the Year 2012. Books I have had three books published each dealing with a project: 'Sea Fever' by Triplekite 'Ridge Trees' by Kozu Books 'Common Ground' by Kozu Books Exhibitions I have exhibited over 20 times in a sole and collaborative capacity principally showing project work.
