2012 & 2013
‘Watermark’ is a series of photographs taken a short distance from open water, particularly around the coast in Weymouth & Portland and the lagoon of Venice. Most images document the effects of saline, maritime environments on the surfaces of man-made objects. Colour and composition are carefully considered.
The images are charged with decadence, oxidization and rot. These are details of places where mankind attempts to tame or contain nature, but where the process of re-integration has already begun, quietly and surreptitiously. The relationship between ‘natural & man-made worlds’ and ‘chaos & order’ has been a touchstone for my creative activity over many years.
A selection of photographic albums can be browsed on a separate website here, but prints must be ordered by e-mail from this website. Images are mounted on 5mm foam-board and are dispatched unframed by courier. Sizes range from A2 (59.4cm x 42cm) to A5 (21cm x 14.8cm). Please quote both the album and image title.
