About the Book
An inspiring study of landscape and urban images in full colour, either abstract or semi-abstract or representational, taken in Cuba, China and the United Kingdom.
These do not attempt to be "pretty" pictures or charming studies but are the reflection of real life and the environment and the expression of man upon the environment or the tricks that nature can play upon it.
This book could change the way in which you view the world and can give many hours of pleasurable interest and contemplation.
The works include those images selected for the 2011 RWA Open Photography Exhibition.

Inspired by architecture and landscape from an early age, studying Art, the History of Architecture and Buildings, buying a Rolleiflex at 21 and the love of travel. All these things set me on a path of discovery and observation around the world. Colour photography can be inspirational in addition to pictorial. I enjoy beautiful landscapes but also enjoy looking further in some instances because there is more to be found if you have the vision. These alternative images can be challenging, maybe shocking but above all makes the viewer think more about the subject matter. The book "Hidden in View" is an example of this and worth taking a look. The WEST COAST LIGHT book is based on images created in California is more pictorial but also contains some interesting abstractions which I hope you will enjoy. More books on the way soon.........
