Aside from working as a portrait photographer, personal projects are also an important element to my work and Landform (a photography gallery and print shop) has been developing in the background for several years.
I approach my landscape photography in an unforced natural way. I often aim to create something more contemplative than vast dramatic panoramas, by extracting more intimate elements from a much larger landscape. Luck can be a major factor when you are working with the environment and when an opportunity shows its face for a brief moment and everything comes together by chance, it can be an extraordinary experience.
There is no indication of where or when the photography was taken – Landform is a composite of many different times and places forming one ongoing body of work. The following selection is a snapshot taken from the Landform homepage which illustrates my love for constant form and chance occurrence, and how this can happen when you least expect it.
The print shop plays an important role by sharing the work and financing the project and ensuring its further development. All of the prices are set at a low introductory rate which changes with the edition and print size. For example, the large prints run in an edition of ten and the small prints run in an edition of 200, which allows the work to be accessible to both collectors and private buyers.The project will eventually take its own direction as the work develops, which is why it runs under a project name – to encourage closely-related spin-offs, collaborations and publications.
Landform is a photographic journey, diary and platform which I hope other people can connect with and follow as it progresses.
