I am an enthusiastic lomographer, using Holga cameras and a lomo lca to photograph landscapes of England (and beyond). Film, whether black & white or colour, captures detail and interprets light in a way that the more sophisticated digital camera cannot. The beauty of the Holga is that, having only one shutter speed and aperture, the only control the photographer has is over the choice of film and (most importantly of all) framing the subject matter. All the photographer's efforts are therefore focussed on the image itself with no other technical distractions. My inspiration comes from the landscape artists of the 18th and 19th century who documented changing rural landscapes. So my photographs aim to document an England that has been changed by a modernising world. Man's influence on our landscapes have been enormous - indeed only the coast of Britain is not man made. My photographs hark back to a romantic idyll of rural scenes that once were, but always with details of contemporary life - be it a power line crossing the countryside or some idle farm machinery.
