Robert Adams, controlling empty space…

The work of Roberts Adams is iconic in visual or written text. I’m not trying to push my work in the direction of New-typography. The power Adams commands with capturing of large space is very important. It is critical to the way you approach you work. In time I have come to understand this. ForContinue reading “Robert Adams, controlling empty space…”

Two points… Photography by Alan Whitfield

I keep my eye wide open all the time because your mine I walk the line as Johnny Cash once sang. From the start of my photography I have always liked my eyes to be pulled into a picture. The visual split second Journey. Where will it take you?  

Crosby Stills And Nash

This is a series of work that took on a Canon Demi film Camera. It’s a half frame camera so from 36 images you get 72. It was a rather considered piece in that sense. It was a total conceptual idea based around the object we all recognise. The Anthony Gormley‘s statues at Crosby. IContinue reading “Crosby Stills And Nash”

Will it Change your View

Adding Photography to music is something that really interests me. I was approached by Joel Cockrill to work on a project with my images to his music. I think the music changes the feel of work. What do you think? The work is from three bodies of work. The now demolished car park from Get Carter in Gateshead called Trinity Square.Continue reading “Will it Change your View”

Some John Bulmer influence crept into my Hereford Trip

Had a great day in Hereford at the Photography festival . I saw loads of great work in some interesting spaces. Some in an office stair well, a market, a swimming pool and the Cathedral.

Where is Hereford, got to see John Bulmer…

On Wednesday I go via my favorite form of public Transport (the Train) to Hereford. Now other than cows and a late goal by Ronnie Radford in the 1972 FA Cup at Home to Newcastle. I know little of the place. I have missed The Hereford Photographic exhibition over the past few years as IContinue reading “Where is Hereford, got to see John Bulmer…”

Reclaimed land

Reclaimed Land The pinnacle… follow the lights and you will find the gold. A Severn wind rattles the soul, rain like pins my face a cushion. Edifice a vision, wooden windows a fact, a collection of faces glued in community, Now divided again by scheme funded foolery. To escape is to renounce only with strength from intrinsicality. As thrust upon pages turn, A dyeingContinue reading “Reclaimed land”

Tides

TIDES Lorys Hughes, Dieppe littoral enclave,  traffic choked in its walls, buckling under load Christian & Nielsen added transport to draw… As a Jacdaw flies onwards over the wall where inner battles once raged, to a far corner of a sanded shore springs a millionaires playground, we await The Mulberry Harbor secret to be told.Continue reading “Tides”
