English Littoral, the coast, the beaches, a re-examination of the desolate landscapes that drew me to them as a child. The odd thing is most were when I was working in Oxford, about as far from the coast as it is possible to be in England.
For simplicity the whole portfolio was photographed with a Rolleiflex twin lens reflex camera. Some early work was with a wooden Gandolfi camera, but wind vibration at Severn Beach caused too many lost negatives, so the Rollei' won. This change to a small camera made long walks easy and forced the square format of these images.
