Artist's statement - Silver Gelatin/film

I first started printing in a darkroom at the tender age of eleven. My Physics Teacher - Mr Brewer - got me started and once I saw the image appearing in the tray, I was hooked.

.

I was fortunate to have been trained in both design and photography at college: learning how to shoot and make images on film first then printing them in a darkroom afterwards.

.

I took a break during the years I was working in advertising, but decided to take it up again once I started my own design business.

.

Here's a small selection of some of my landscapes using 120 film and a Hasselblad. Most have been printed by me in a darkroom on fibre-based paper, then toned and washed using archival techniques.

.

All my darkroom gear is currently boxed and waiting for darkroom number three to be built. So I won't be printing much for the foreseeable future.
