2020... I feel there are points in life suited for moments of reflection,
times to take stock, to acknowledge any progress and achievements, to
learn from the adversities, and to set new goals for the future.
Since 2010, it has been the world of music that has given me the most
opportunities to practice my photography and fortunately I've seen my
work published on album and EP covers, within the pages of national
print magazines, and many many online publications.
More recently though, I decided to double my efforts and pursue a career
outside the music world too, following my love for creating artistic
street and fine photography... as these web pages show. I've had some
initial success... including print sales, an honourable mention in a
competition, and having my first images chosen for curated exhibitions.
And so, as Covid-19 wracks the globe and my music world remains on an
enforced hiatus, now would seem like a good time to mark my development
so far, and look at how to build on it for the future... With that in
mind I would like to introduce my first photobook... I.
I sometimes find it difficult to title my images in a meaningful way...
and a photobook is no easier! I do like the fun of alternative meanings...
in this case " I
", as a Roman numeral meaning "one" (to indicate the
first book); as a sound-play on "eye" (the photographer's
eye or camera lens); and also in the first person sense of " I
", because all these photos contained in the book are very personal
to me and hold a little part of my character within them.
Therefore this collection of images is special to me... seventy one
images that I am particularly pleased with and proud to have created.
I believe they are representative of how I see my artistic style, particularly
in a compositional way, and show a broad view of my photographic journey
so far (to March 2020)... including a few hints towards my music photography
work. In general, though, the images are mainly aesthetic slices of
life as I saw it. Most of the images are listed on the archive
page available to buy as signed prints, but not all. Some images
are exclusive to this book only.
It is available in two formats... an exclusive leatherette
covered hardback with photographic paper pages (limited to just
three production copies) and a regular soft
cover version (perfect for coffee tables the world over). Both versions
are the same size (21 x 21cm), the images printed at the same size in
each version, in the same order over the same number of pages too.
The books are available to purchase directly from myself. The soft cover
version is priced at £10 plus postage and delivery costs... and
for the leatherette hard cover version I am open to offers. If interested,
please click the relevant version above for the details.
