CARDINAL POINTS

Guided by the concept that a photograph is a map, or chart, of time and light, I have embarked on several photographic expeditions around the British coastline - most notably to the extreme northerly, southerly, westerly and easterly points. Directing my camera along the cardinal axis at each destination, I made a series of exposures capturing and recording the atmosphere of the sea. To add a sense of symmetry and cohesion to the project, the exposures were made at specific moments in the astronomical calendar, that is to say; the summer and winter solstices, and the spring and autumn equinoxes.

Distillations of time, space, light and colour at the extremities of the British mainland, they create a space for contemplation, and a connection to the universe as a whole.
