The Urban Forest

Nice to have another feature in the excellent online journal The Garden Edit​. From a series of photographs taken between 2011- 2014 of the Elephant and Castle Urban Forest​ which is now being redeveloped:

Brent River Park

Revisiting part of a walk I completed 12 months ago – through Brent River Park, Hanwell.

Wasn’t sure if this was a memorial or not. Placed on a tree over the River Brent,  there was nothing to suggest why these flowers were there, but it looked quite deliberate.

I have photographed the Wharncliffe Viaduct many times. Wandering around beneath the huge arches is like being in a film set. Maybe ‘Logan’s Run’ …..nature reclaiming a derelict city.

From a selection of images submitted to Millennium Images yesterday. I’ve never quite worked this one out. It looks like the leftovers of a strange ritual. On Waterloo Bridge in the rush hour, with thousands of people walking by.

Infra red

Not spring colour, but some infra red images from a roll taken whilst I was at college….circa 1980. They came to mind after a conversation this morning. Requiring the old E4 process, which was pretty much obsolete, even then, it was a bit of a palava to use. And expensive. But turning anything containing chlorophyll bright red, it was interesting to play with.

Polymer gravure printing

The full set of polymer gravure prints or photo etchings I have been making at East London Printmakers over the last few months. They will be included in the Wildlings exhibition at Oxford House, Bethnal Green.

Wildlings

A few new images taken recently, which I might include in the selection for the Wildlings exhibition at Oxford House. I found these whilst rowing, returning later with a camera. There is a completely different perspective from a boat, offering views invisible from a footpath. These trees have chosen inhospitable places for themselves to grow. It’s not just a case of surviving. They obviously thrive.
