‘A thing of beauty is a joy forever; its loveliness increases, it will never pass into nothingness’   John Keats
The way that I view and ultimately photograph the countryside has been greatly influenced by a number of people who didn’t even have cameras.
I think it’s worth noting that the English Romantics such as Keats and Blake fundamentally changed how we all relate to the landscape. Their focus on immersing ourselves in our surroundings was then further developed by William Turner and the great Impressionist painters like Cezanne and Monet. They changed forever how we view and experience the world.
More recently, we’ve been lucky enough to share the photographic genius and vision of the likes of Ansel Adams, Galen Rowell and Peter Dombrovskis, true artistic giants.
In the same tradition and, thankfully, still with us, are many fellow photographers whose example and inspiration continue to astonish, baffle and motivate me.
It would be remiss of me not to list some of them here, together with links to them or related sites.
Christopher Burkett, Joe Cornish, David Ward, Les McLean, Paul Gallagher, Richard Childs, Dav Thomas, Eddie Ephraums, Anna Booth, Chris Bell, Paul Kenny, Tim Parkin.
I hope you all find things to cherish there, as I have.
