Two worlds

I cannot reconcile my earlier documentary work and my later commercial work.

Some images cross the boundary a little easier. This image didnt sell too well through Getty Images though of course that is only one way to judge it.

Between two worlds new patterns emerge.

Ferns shot on 6×7 colour transparency and the water shot on  a Gandolfi camera using 10″x 8″ black and white film. Image composited in Barco Creator Software. Both images shot in the early 1990s, Location: the Lake District / Brockley, London.

the nature of things

Surrounded by the intensity of nature, occasionally the blinkers are lowered. Hilly Fields park in Brockley London. (Its parallels with “The singing ringing tree” also strike a chord)

Lost in Bristol

I was in Bristol for the Wildscreen festival and decided to go for a walk.

In one of the city squares an area was cordoned off for rebuilding but you could still kind of walk around it.

I spotted these trees overgrowing a statue and it reminded me of a part of the conversation between David Attenborough and Chris Packam at a talk I attended the previous day,

For just a moment, they speculated how the natural world would recover well from the extinction of humans, they didnt dwell long on  the subject aware that they may have overstepped some boundary.

In the city centre I caught a little glimpse of the possibility.
