These six images were all taken very early in the morning - they
catch that moment between darkness - through the greyness of the morning, just
before the sun really brightens the world to vibrant colour.
They are all straight photographs of what was there to be seen. I don't want the viewer to be dazzled by colour, or distracted by the artistry of black and white.
I want the viewer to see exactly what was there. I don't really want these images to be seen as objects first. I want you the viewer to stand back and consider what is seen. They are ordinary everyday pictures of everyday places, there was no specific knowledge of the places beforehand. They are spontaneous observations from life.
The swans are from the River Soar as it runs through
Leicester, the abstract reflections are from the canal in Nottingham and the spinnaker raising is from the Hamble River near Southampton.
