I've always been fascinated by the play of light and shadows, gem stones, rock form and glass. Nature has a wonderful way of giving me all of these in a shoreline or river.
The gentle swaying of seaweed or plant life. The shadows in the rock pools or river banks and the wonderful colours of shells and reflections . I can get lost for hours walking beside or laying next to them and just loosing myself in the mesmerising patterns.
This series, Whangauma Waters, is one such shoreline shot on a blindingly bright summers day in New Zealand displays a kaleidoscope of beautiful colours and a play of chiaroscuro ripples.
The brilliantly coloured yet totally serene prints offer a moment of calm.
On a recent trip to London, I sought to photograph the moments of calm and minimalistic serenity that exists in one of the busiest cities in the world. The graphic edges and shapes that interplay between buildings and the calming shafts of blues-grey skies in them was a calming influence on the chaos at street level.
The first day after the lockdown in New Zealand I visited my local beach Piha. It was wild, dark, tempestuous, as only Piha can be with its black sand wildness. the surfers were out and the surf was up.
