Incidental Images is a collection of my photography. All images are for sale as signed, high quality craft prints on art paper.
My work ranges from the gritty to the sublime with a focus on the human impact on the landscape, for few places remain untouched by the human hand. From busy cities to our empty uplands, these images have been gathered during my travels and wanderings.
Each is an individual image, the result of how I see the landscape and place, often the unsung places, the untidy edges, the diversion down a side street or back alleyway; the places less often visited, less often seen, each providing beauty in its own way.
Printing and Image Sizes
Most of the images in these galleries are sized as taken – to be technical, at a ratio of 3:2.
The image you choose will be giclee printed onto 285 gsm ‘portrait white’ fine art paper by a small craft print business. This combination of ink and paper gives each print a lightfast rich artistic feel, sometimes a feel almost beyond a simple photographic image.
Each image will be printed to the size specified with an additional 3cm white border to help mounting and framing*. The final print will be carefully wrapped in acid free paper and securely packed in a sturdy cardboard roll. The print will be dispatched within 5 working days from receipt of your payment. At this time I am only taking orders from within the UK. All prices include UK post and packing.
Typical sizes are:
|Image size||Paper Size|
|Small||20 x 30 cm||26 x 36 cm|
|Standard||30 x 45 cm||36 x 51 cm|
|Large||40 x 60 cm||46 x 66 cm|
* A5 gift prints will be printed with a minimum 1cm border around the image so that the outside edge equals A5 size. The print will be dispatched in a stiff card envelope.
If asked, I would say I am a walker, a wanderer and a photographer, all based on my love of geography. Seeing a landscape and understanding how and why it looks like it does has been a passion for most of my life.
Landscape is often seen through a rather wistful cultural filter and talked about as ‘timeless’ though it is anything but. It is both the impermanence of landscape and the challenge to traditional views that inspire my photography. Whether a city, a moor, the coast, an industrial or, too often, a post-industrial landscape, my photography is about capturing this moment in time.
This perspective only adds to my joy of wandering, of walking, stravaiging – as the Scots have it – through cities or through empty lands. With a camera in my hand I can be lost in the act of taking a photograph, lose track of time, lose myself in trying to capture the image.
The photographer Gary Winogrand put it thus: “Photography is not about the thing being photographed. It is about how that thing looks photographed.” And these images are just that. Whilst in some cases I have gone to a place in order to take a photograph, most of these Incidental Images have been taken whilst I walk and wander.
