Photographed at Tate
St Ives during a visit last month to see the fantastic Naum Gabo
I love how Naum Gabo's constructions define their own spacial boundaries
and play with lines and textures compositionally within that space...
very inspiring for a mind that likes to see elements of order and structure
It seems I came away from the exhibition with my eyes even more open
to seeing things in a similarly structured way and I noticed this window
looking out onto the beach.
I waited for a minute or two as several people had a look outside. Initially,
I wanted a clean shot of the frame but when my son had a look too I
pressed the shutter button. The light seemed just right and it was almost
like he was having a closer look at a painting, just like one would
elsewhere in the gallery. I'm glad I didn't wait. Without him there
I think I may have found the image too simple and would have grown tired
of it quickly.
I've come to realise some of my favourite images balance these views
of people / life with a strong visual structure. Good fun trying to
get it just right!
If this image is the first of mine you have seen, or you are relatively
new to my work, please know I'm always keen to make new contacts and
push my photography to wider horizons. If you like what you see, say
If you are able to help bring my photography to a larger audience, then
lets talk! I'd be glad to hear from you!
