A new year and a new website

Feedback on my earlier website was that people found the way the photographs were displayed all in a uninterrupted line very confusing and they weren't sure where the frames ended and or began. So taking all that on board I decided to re-design the website in order that each individual photograph was separate and easy to see. All that being said I do hope that people now like this website design as I don't really want to change it yet again and lose all credibility.

Also with the new year I have a different focus for my photographs. I have found that I enjoy abstract photography - art photography!  I enjoy the challenge of seeing common everyday things in a new light and from a different perspective.

Currently I am focusing on Rodchenko an early 20th Century Russian artist, graphic designer and photographer. He was a contemporary of Mayakovsky the larger than life poet of the early revolution. Whose poem A Cloud in Trousers outraged the critics as it went to lengths to debunk the idealistic notions of romantic poetry and poets.

Rodchenko used his work to popularise the Revolution and to shock the viewer and shake up their preconceived ideas of what photography was about. He is quoted as saying"

"One has to take several different shots of a subject, from different points of view and in different situations, as if one examined it in the round rather than looked through the same key-hole again and again."
