Concepts, Thoughts and Discussions


“The biodiversity crisis is real and urgent. But – and this is the crucial point – it is not too late. To transition to a sustainable world, we need to tread more lightly on the planet. Until then, we are essentially robbing future generations of their inheritance.” Prof Andy Purvis, Natural History Museum, London.
 (Purvis, The Guardian online 3.6.20)

My blog is a mix – some posts discuss the concepts behind my projects, others introduce you to my philosophies and passion in our changing world. These more discursive posts I intend to add to as the year progresses. Please do contact me with your comments.

My Art Direction and Invitation for Collaboration

July 2020. Recent professional Portfolio Reviews have been encouraging and I have a number of options for taking my art forward. My work is considered Fine Art recognising the textual quality and my intention to express my ideas rather than taking realistic documentary photography. My love of the countryside and shore lines, which, together with… Read more My Art Direction and Invitation for Collaboration

Arctic Expedition

My adventure of a lifetime…and what an adventure – unexpected land encounters with polar bear, walrus attack on our rubber dinghy and a Force 10 MAYDAY callout. Nevertheless in 2017 climate change was evident – glaciers calving and animals waiting for snow and ice. It was much too warm. I have selected a further range… Read more Arctic Expedition
