2020 was a year when the world turned in so many ways and which many would choose to forget.
The effect of COVID-19 has been profound. For me as a photographer something unexpected was that I started photographing less with my conventional cameras and more with my phone.
As a means to stay connected I began posting more on Instagram resulting in 311 posts during the year. These posts represent my observations and feelings during that time, with just a few face masks appearing.
Of the posts I have selected 162 to look back on 2020 for this exhibition as part of Watlington Photographers Collective.
Why 162? Come along to the exhibition to find out...
I am based in Oxfordshire and specialise in fine art, commissioned and event photography with a particular focus on nature and live music. My creative approach comes from my origins in film photography and that of Ansel Adams in terms of observation, visualisation and realisation. In order to give me full control of the creative process I began digital giclée printing back in 1998. I have been featured in Amateur Photographer and have exhibited extensively in Berkshire and Oxfordshire, including ‘WOOD’, 'blue’, 'exo earth', 'WOOD LIGHT', 'The Web' , ‘Willows of Wallingford’ and ‘SPECTRA’.
