Impressionism

…an artistic style concerned with depicting the visual impression of the moment,

especially in terms of the shifting effect of light and colour,

seeking to communicate a feeling or experience

rather than to achieve accurate depiction…

 

Welcome to this online gallery. My home is in southern France, between the mountains and the sea. I’ve been gathering impressions of the hills and coastline, the changing seasons, and traditions and events in this region, and sometimes in other places: Portugal, Spain, England.

 

The rooms in this gallery show what I’m interested in. I’m fascinated by the seasonal changes in the landscape and the large and small elements within it. At the coast the boundaries between sea and sky and land shift and dazzle, disappear in mist and emerge again with the sun. It's great to feel in the moment and the flow with musicians I’m photographing. And my impressions of cities and the people in them are just that: moments that feel characteristic of a place and time.

Chalabre 2021 has been my first exhibition following the periods of lockdown response to Covid-19 in France : I have enjoyed the ability to explore other places and spaces as the country finds a way to emerge from confinement.

 

Prints and online licensing are available of any of the images in this gallery: please contact me to discuss what you’d like.

 

Also please ask if you’d like to commission me to photograph a place or event.
