Through this medium of photography I express these visual statements about my place in the city and how this world impinges upon me. Subjects and themes can be anything that express this emotional vision, including landscape, architecture, people or any of the many man made forms that surround us. My style of photographic imagery expresses feelings of awe and humility drawn from his unique landscape.

    Wonderful, wonderful imagine, Peter. Natural light flooding across a workshop entirely devoted to function,each machine and tool being a sculptural piece in itself. I can almost smell the oil!! I like the broom, it tells me that people still use this space and are just about to return. : ) : ) Cecily

  • Im glad you can feel the intent I had in making this image Cecily, you are spot on and those are the things that drew me to the shot as well. Thank you :)
