"I still have that first roll of film (I ever took), it was of Trafalgar Square, the photographs are of the space, the built environment of the square and not the people. I return there often to photograph."

I love how he framed his photographs. Great compositions.

I have never heard of him before. Glad!!! You posted his work

Gary Bowen said...

Love the tonal control and the composition. Smashing.

I agree with Z !
Medium format 6x6 is very well-balanced on the base that can represent a constraint .
He creates very energetics compositions and finaly we don't have the feeling that he works with a square format.
Thank you, I didn't know his images !
