Roads to Nowhere

Roads to nowhere – through the late nineties into the 21st century the ‘holiday home’ market in Cyprus was booming! Whole estates planned, roads and infrastructure installed, ready for the overseas buyers wanting their slice of sun away from home. Then the 2008 global financial crisis was followed by the collapse of the Greek economyContinue reading “Roads to Nowhere”

Long time no post

It’s been a while since a post of any kind.  Life is busy with teaching photography and that is ticking along nicely.  More of a rythem is needed with my own blogging about my own photographic exploits. For now here are two star trails from the weekend just gone, enjoy!

Camera Obscura

The Camera Obscura is an ancient concept of a darkened room with an opening allowing light to pass through.  This light projects the outside world upside down and back to front and in all its glory on the walls inside the camera. Andrew has been refining his practice of making and documenting camera obscuras and examplesContinue reading “Camera Obscura”

Been wanting to shoot this location for ages!

Queen Elizabeth Country Park Star Trails

Loving the clear winter sky’s recently! Snapped this beauty at Queen Elizabeth Country Park in Horndean earlier this week.

Isambard Brunel Car Park

As part of an ongoing exploration of the non-place I am closing in on several categories of space.  The view is to create a typology of non-place.  A photographic record of the world around us.  A world which we frequent on a regular basis but rarely think of as anything special. In this particular instanceContinue reading “Isambard Brunel Car Park”

Secret Dockyard

Secret Dockyard was a photographic project during 2011 to 2012 documenting the conservation areas of Boathouse No4 in the Historic Dockyard, Portsmouth.  A historical structure in its own right, Boathouse No4 was a key part in preparations for D-Day and other aspects of World War Two. The aim of the project was to show theseContinue reading “Secret Dockyard”

A Road Petrol Stations at Night

A photographic investigation of non-place and the sanctuary provided by the A Road Petrol Station.  Emerging from the darkness of the long nights drive, they give us shelter, food and water. All images photographed using a 5×4 large format technical camera on Kodak Portra 160.

Decay

As part of a recent triptych as contribution to a photographic collective called ‘Collective of Two’.  Andrew shot a short series of animal skulls.  The images were shot in a studio environment using focus stacking to create a hyper focal image.

Milky Way over Hurst Castle

The Milky Way is something I’ve always wanted to photograph but needed to enthuse myself to get out and do it. Recently on a camping trip in the New Forest I trekked out to Hurst Castle at about 1am and finally captured one! This has ignighted a growing spark for astro-photography and I hope isContinue reading “Milky Way over Hurst Castle”
