Tree and Field
Sometimes farmers do this, leave one solitary tree in a large field, perhaps to offer shade for their sheep. But we mustn't forget that the Scottish Borders farmer has a keen eye for the aesthetics of minimalism.
Landscape as Narrative
I came to photography by way of collage. All I ever wanted to do was take my own pictures and make collages but as I found there's so much more to investigate en route. Anyway, here I am, back at the beginning, experimenting with the kind of work that I always wanted to make with respect to landscape. I was discussing the use of film, rolls of 35mm, with a friend of mine, a very experienced and gifted photographic, sculptural and land artist. He spoke about the narrative of the roll of film and it got me thinking about the practices involved in travel photography and about ways of presenting landscape as a simultaneous series, as memories of a day's walk, the intimacies of a personal adventure.
