My new book – Old Parson’s Fruit ‘n’ Veg

Old Parson’s Fruit ‘n’ Veg is the title, Fruit-‘n’-Veg through old glass – is the content of my new Blurb book. created at the suggestion of a friend who recommended I produce a book to show what I do.

A celebration of the everyday – seen through the old eye of a 100-year-old plate camera. Each image has been created as a negative on a piece of photographic paper making the objects look quite different – yet familiar. Some have been “developed” to positive images in “Photoshop” where this helps highlight specific characteristics that intrigue me, or I find beautiful.

It took a long time to look through the images produced in the last 15 months and select 90 of the best and most representative images.

A dedicated photographer of the environment, weather, landscape and its inhabitants, I have assembled a collection of awe-inspiring images for this exhibition. Many in colour, but a number in black & white - a medium which suits my love of the dramatic in photography. Starting from these photographs, I have produced linocuts and woodcuts as well as sculptures in wood. Each of these inspired by what is seen on my many walks in the region and beyond. A passionate experimenter, I am enjoying working with antique cameras and alternative photographic processes to make images that are more about conveying feeling, emotion, memory than they are about being a pixel perfect record of a moment in in time.
