From the archive – two images from The Coast of Light series. From the archive – 17.4.11, El Penitentes, – Easter Day parade, Conil, Andalucia. Large ornate floats, with statues of the Virgin Mary, are carried through town on Easter Sunday. This float probably had upwards of 30 people underneath to support the weight. More clay covered folk in Conil, Andalucia, 14.8.11 – from The Coast of Light. In Conil there is an outcrop of rock with layers of blue green clay in which bathers cover themselves, believing it’s good for the skin.

From the archive – For What Car magazine, 1986. We borrowed the ‘new’ Renault Savanna from the Paris Motor Show as it closed on the first day and did night shots around the city with two other cars. Ended up doing this dawn shot as a last ditch effort to get a cover before returning the car to the show at 8am for the second day. A deadline dreamed up by someone still tucked up in bed! The final cover and layout, from What Car? December 1986.
Sorting through some old contact sheets….c1986, Pendine Sands. I think this sums up pretty much every car photoshoot I did in Wales. Art Director Nick Dixon on the left, me loading film. I also remember being accosted by the MOD Police for straying onto the beach on a red flag. They confiscated film on the grounds that my photos could have captured missiles being fired out to sea. These were sent back to us after they were processed….as the images showed nothing more than run of the mill hatchbacks in very wet sand!
Close-up of waterlilies in the main lake at Monet’s garden, Giverny. Unknown varieties – records of the plants in the garden were not as detailed as I normally find in UK gardens.
