Artist's Description

As I continue my photographic journey towards the Neverland Collection of paintings I find I need to add this interlude to the mix. Having flown over Antarctica and taken a couple of images that facinated me…being this one Midnight over Antarctica and this one Zeus over Antarctica

I found I needed to really think about things for a while, so I retreated to my studio and spent nearly a year painting the imagined landscape of Antarctica. As a side line I paint and pretty well. When I need to think I like to paint…. its so soothing as opposed to taking photo’s which is all action and intuition for me.
So over this period I produced a whole slew of painting some of which are behind me.

Ultimately though my voice is stronger with a camera and my need to be in the landscape was really compelling me to put down the brushes and pick up the IR camera again. Which is what I did. I am very attracted to the pure unadulterated landscape….. devoid of the traces of mankind and indeed of everything but the light it becomes a kind of communion and is powerful and coherent and almost like poetry to me.

I would imagine that this will be the one and only picture I ever post of myself actively engaged with painting although I have a long history as a painter. I’m a skillful painter but a passionate photographer.

and another one
