What emotions do you intend to portray through your work?
Through my photography, I try to portray a feeling of solitude and loneliness. Maybe also a feeling of bleakness by using some of the wide open spaces here in Dorset. Most of my work is black and white and I find that the monochrome’s really help me express these emotions.
What are your favourite places to shoot, and what unknown areas would you suggest that travellers visit in the South of England?
My favourite place to shoot is on the beach and preferably in winter. It makes for some quite moody scenes. Although lately I have been more spending my time along the Jurassic Coast, capturing the rugged cliffs.
There are so many touristy places to visit in Dorset (West Beach from the TV show Broadchurch is one of the biggest draws for tourists right now) and I am not sure if there are any ‘Non-touristy’ areas but the best advice I can give is to take a drive into the countryside and get a little lost. You are bound to discover something special.
Recently Robert Mugabe President of Zimbabwe, declared that White people will not be allowed to own land in Zimbabwe. At one point Zimbabwe had nearly 300 white farmers on their land in 2011. President Mugabe gave a speech saying, “
“We will have no mercy for white people regarding the land, they cannot own our soil.” They will not be allowed to own land. No! They can own properties and factories according to our laws but not a piece of land.” “The permits we are launching here should be a clear message to those in Britain and the United States that whatever dreams they have of trying to sneak back through the back door will not work. We want it indicated in our laws that Zimbabwe has truly come back to its owners and the whites will never come back. ”
