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.

I’ve been photographing landscapes and people in Andalucia, Spain, since 2004. This is a recent collection taken earlier this month in Conil and nearby Cape Trafalgar. More images can be seen in ‘Projects’ under The Coast of Light.
I haven’t uploaded many new images from the Coast of Light series for a while, but these are selection of recent images from walks around the town of Conil, in Andalucia this summer.
Some more recent additions to the Coast of Light series, from Andalucia. This is an edit from a set taken in August 2013.
From the Coast of Light series – Cliff top path near Calla Aceite, Conil, August 2009. This marker has since disappeared due to the continued erosion of the coastline.
Driftwood – from a project in 2010 called ‘Deadwood’. Parts of trees and shrubs washed up on a beach near collapsed cliffs in Conil, Andalucia.
Some new photographs from the Coast Of Light series, taken during August 2012.
A sequence taken on an early morning walk on the cliff-top paths near Cala del Aceite, near the town of Conil in Andalucia.
A few more shots from Andalucia, August 2011, with a couple slipped in from the Semana Santa, or Holy Week.
Some additions to the Coast of Light series I started a couple of years ago. Taken with my Fuji 6×4.5cm, the films and lo res scans arrived this morning. I quite like them as they are, as the colour is slightly muted, but I will make high res scans when time allows.
