“It’s not the slick, professional-type vistas that encourage my images, but rather the silent minimal corners and the men and women I briefly encounter”

Working on extensive-type assignments is anything I converse about a good deal in this column. Previous time, I wrote about an ongoing black-and-white job on trees in the urban natural environment. This time, I desired to examine a different undertaking – it’s based on my travels, despite the fact that I do not take into consideration it a journey images task. I even have a performing title: In Amongst.

I’m lucky to travel the environment chatting about the artwork and craft of pictures on cruise ships, which gives me a level of entry that is the stuff of desires. Contacting the task ‘In Between’ alludes to the mother nature of that travel. I’m neither crew nor a entirely fledged guest, and hardly ever in one particular location for very long – extra frequently than not, only a handful of hours, adopted by long days at sea. So the perform is evolving to be far more autobiographical, extra about my impressions and my perception of put than about educational location imagery.
