My photographic work falls into three areas: what I call Colour Fields, Surfaces and Objects, each in their own way explore “parts” of visual fields, often without reference points for scale.
I have been involved in photography since I was 12, starting with a badly performing Kalimar camera and exposure meter, through to 6×6 medium format Hasselblad.
Let us also reflect on the demise of Kodachrome 64 as a way of seeing with film, as it was influential in how whole generations came to see the world and how photographers interpreted its colours. But that was then and digital is now.
I have a collection of photography books going back to early 1900s through to the early 1950s, as well as an almost complete set of Kodak’s Applied Photography magazine from the early 1930s.
Do we ‘see’ differently today?
