Bernie’s World
Ecce Signum Salutis (Behold the Sign of Salvation), Bernie Sanders edit. It’s only been a week since Bernie upstaged Joe and unleashed his mittens upon the world! This week, as chair of the Senate’s Budget Committee, he’s been keeping it real by chiselling away at the glass ceiling and introducing legislation on one of his key issues, income inequality. The Raise the Wage Act if passed will increase the federally set hourly minimum wage for all Americans from its current $7.25 to $15 by 2025. 🙌

Lulworth Cove
Who doesn’t love a snow day? It was lovely to have snow flakes falling in London today and to see people out enjoying themselves in the midst of this gloomy winter but so frustrating not to be able to get out to one of the many UK locations I have earmarked to shoot in snow. Here’s one of my shots from an equally rare snowy day on the Dorset coast. Limited edition prints available!

Diamond Beach, Iceland
“And I still find it so hard
To say what I need to say
But I'm quite sure that you'll tell me
Just how I should feel today”
.
Lyric excerpt from Blue Monday by Peter Hook/New Order.
.
Today is Blue Monday, supposedly the most depressing day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. That may well be so, particularly if you have a news channel on loop this evening, but to me it’s the title of one of my favourite songs of all time and the inspiration behind this image shot in Iceland for @carloandtheorganicjam

Mont Saint-Michel
Proof that I can manage to get out of bed at the crack of dawn under the right circumstances! Arriving before sunrise is pretty much the only way you can ever hope to have the view of Mont Saint-Michel to yourself. This image was from a beautiful but chilly walk before breakfast on a stopover driving back from Spain earlier this year, just before travel became all but a pleasant memory!

Hoover Dam, Arizona
I remember the desert wind being so warm the evening that I made this image of the Hoover Dam. On a day of incessant rain which has felt like it barely became light before becoming dark again I’ve been working on some new prints from warmer and brighter climes!

Poldark Country

Made famous as the location of Ross Poldark’s Wheal Leisure Mine in the BBC drama series, this is the lower of The Crowns engine houses at Botallack Mine facing a heavy sea. 👉 Swipe to see the comparative illustration behind the composition of my image.

Planet Earth
Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends and followers and wishing that you’re all safe and well. A few posts back I spoke about my kids insisting on seeing literally everything on display at the American Museum of Natural History which took them almost three entire days! As I’m sure you can imagine, I had plenty of time to pause for thought and whilst looking at the famous dioramas which were mostly created around one hundred years ago it struck me that the staged environments were in the main representative of a historical record and not relevant to the present hence my deciding to create something a little more poignant. During our visits I photographed many of the dioramas thinking of Bernd and Hilla Becher’s systematic portrayal of industrial structures and Hiroshi Sugimoto’s Dioramas series many of which were made in the halls of @amnh and how I could apply my own aesthetic and sensibilities to the subject in front of me. Wherever I go with my camera I am seeking to convey a sense of place and speak about the implications of the constructed within the human altered landscape and I wanted to introduce the impact we have had on our planet into the scenes portrayed. In 2019 the world looked on in horror as wildfires ravaged California, Russia, Southern Europe, Indonesia, Australia and elsewhere. In Australia alone, one fifth of the country’s entire temperate broadleaf and mixed forest biome burned, an area the size of England. It is estimated that humans are responsible for around 75% of such fires which have massive consequences for human health, our economies and biodiversity.

Reykjanes Peninsula

Edward Hopley

Following on from yesterday’s post, this is another image from the series I made at Gunnuhver Geothermal Area, the location of Iceland Deep Drilling Project’s 4.5km deep borehole. Although my images of this landscape look apocalyptic at first glance, they’re not what they seem: In the distance is the Reykjanesvirkjun renewable energy power station. Harnessing the awesome power of nature, the turbines at this plant generate electricity using geothermal steam of between 290 and 320 degrees celsius. . . DM me for details of limited edition prints at all my usual sizes; an A2 edition of 12, an A1 edition of 8, an A0 edition of 5, and also in an edition of fifty 16” x 12” (approx A3) archival pigment prints released as part of the wonderful #artistsupportpledge initiative. . . I’m sure you all know by now but for those that don’t, by participating in the Artist Support Pledge project each participant offers works for £200 or less and for every £1000 in sales pledges to purchase work to the value of £200 from other participating artists. Anyone, anywhere in the world is welcome to join @artistssupportpledge a community driven movement of creative generosity which is helping artists to get through the economic impact caused by the pandemic. . . . . . #steam #steampower #volcaniclandscape #moodynature #greenenergy #volcaniclandscape #hotsprings #geothermalenergy #sulphursprings #reykjanesvirkjun #geothermalfield #grindavik #reykjanespeninsula #missingiceland #wheniniceland #iceland🇮🇸 #icelandscape #igersiceland #icelandtravel #icelandair #contemporaryphotography #limitededitionprints

Gunnuhver Geothermal Area
I’d love an excuse to print this image big! It’s one of a series I made at Gunnuhver Geothermal Area which is named after a local witch who according to Icelandic legend perished in this boiling cauldron, Iceland’s largest mud pool. Gunna had fallen out with a local farmer but died before their problems were resolved. Shortly after her funeral the farmer was found dead but the matter didn’t end there and Gunna continued to wreak havoc, attacking both people and animals and making the area unbearable to live in. Eventually a priest was summoned to set a trap and Gunna was thrown into the hot spring!
.
Available big (or in any of my other sizes!) and can be framed in time for Christmas! DM for details.

Land's End
The wreck of RMS Mülheim lying below Mayon Cliff, Cornwall. I love the walk along the coast path between Sennen Cove and Land’s End and was lucky enough to be here with my camera during a massive Atlantic swell just before this second lockdown. Even luckier is that my camera and I didn’t get completely soaked which is what usually happens when I’m out and about photographing storms! 🌊

Studland Beach Dorset
The last of my Poppy Appeal print offer posts is this image of the World War II pillbox at Redend Point on Studland Bay’s South Beach. This is a special place for my family as my grandparents had a holiday home a few sandy steps away from where this photo is taken and as kids my sister, my cousins and I spent many happy hours playing on the beach and using this pillbox as a hideout, enjoying the freedoms that my grandparents’ generation paid such a high price to defend. I’m donating 20% of the proceeds of any print sales this remembrance week to the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal 2020 which helps support veterans in need, bereavement counselling for families of Forces personnel, etc.. DM me for more details.

World War II bunker, Plage de la Giraudière, Île d’Oléron. I photographed a series of these prior to their demolition and removal from the beach in 2012.

Tower of London
On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 hostilities ceased on the Western Front of World War I. The image I’m posting today is of Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red, the unforgettable installation of ceramic poppies in the moat at the tower of London which took it’s title from the first line of a poem by an unknown WWI soldier.

Museo Guggenheim Bilbao
I love this picture of my daughter seemingly about to be caught by “Maman”, Louise Bourgeois’s monumental sculpture of a spider conceived as an ode to her mother and which stands guard on the concourse of the @museoguggenheim Bilbao. Inspired by the installation, this week she has been researching a presentation for her art class on the life and work of Bourgeois. Love that too!

I love this picture of my daughter seemingly about to be caught by “Maman”, Louise Bourgeois’s monumental sculpture of a spider conceived as an ode to her mother and which stands guard on the concourse of the @museoguggenheim Bilbao. Inspired by the installation, this week she has been researching a presentation for her art class on the life and work of Bourgeois. Love that too! . . . . . . #maman #louisebourgeois #guggenheim #museum #bilbao #guggenheimmuseum #guggenheimbilbao #guggenheimbilbaomuseoa #spider #bronze #sculpture #outdoorsculpture #arthistorymatters #architecture #contemporaryarchitecture #frankgehry #confessionalart #feministart #surrealism #modernart #contemporaryart #installationart #frenchamericanartist

Houses of Parliament

Edward Hopley

The Palace of Westminster mirroring the autumnal hues of fallen leaves in Victoria Tower Gardens, a beautiful sight which made me want to take an iPhone snap and also to pause for a moment of reflection on my walk back home to Brixton from a meeting in St. James’s. London currently feels a very different place than the buzzy, vibrant city that I moved back to during the Olympic Games. The second photo is of my daughter holding one of the Olympic torches a mere eight years ago, and who is now choosing what and where to study, eager to embark on her own journey as a young woman in a world that has changed so much in such a relatively short time span, in no small part due to momentous decisions debated and enshrined in law within this iconic building. The Victoria Tower which dominates the view from this lawn houses the archive of historical Parliamentary records. . . . . . . #victoriatowergardens #victoriatower #palaceofwestminster #housesofparliament #londonwalks #autumninlondon #ukscenery #ukpotd #gloriousbritain #postcardfromlondon #prettycitylondon #exploringlondon #unescoworldheritagesite #westminster #perpendiculargothic #gothicrevivalarchitecture

Charmouth
Would love an evening swim 🏊‍♂️ in Sidmouth right now but the sensible side of me has kept me at my desk in London on a post holiday catch up mission and project planning Mouth to Mouth, a new long term series which sets out to explore themes of regeneration (or the lack of) and resuscitation in coastal communities around Covid-struck post-Brexit Britain.

Dorset
I’m only a few hours out of quarantine and Boris has just announced that as of Monday we’re going to be restricted to groups of six but on the plus side the Met Office has confirmed that it’s not time to put away the bbq or give up on the beach just yet, apparently parts of the UK are about to be basking in positively balmy temps which could even reach 30 degrees in places by Monday! Bring on the weekend! 😎

French Alps

Edward Hopley

Time to say hello again after a six week hiatus from posting on here. The reason for the radio silence, a wonderful break with my family in the French Alps and just the tonic I needed after a lockdown stuck in London! Massive and heartfelt thank you to @skivillaroger1 for helping to make our stay in your beautiful mountains so memorable - we can’t wait to return! ❤️🚠🏔

I still have a few prints available of this image of a Russian flagged fleet of factory ships at anchor in Weymouth Bay, one of my early works (circa 1996/97) questioning our impact upon the environment. These vessels and the ecologically disastrous practice they ply should not be in our waters, have no place upon our seas and shouldn’t even exist but until we choose more wisely what we consume exist they will. DM for info if you’d like one for your dining room wall!

Namib Desert, Namibia
Namibia’s enigmatic fairy circles as seen from a sunrise hot air balloon safari over the breathtakingly spectacular Namib Desert with @namibsky. The cause of these bare patches evenly spread out across the arid grassland plains of Namibia remains a hotly contested mystery in scientific circles. One of their many peculiar qualities is a spooky low level magnetism but amongst the many theories as to their existence that abound, the leading contenders range from root eating sand termite colonies or underground fungi to natural grass patterns caused by competition due to water scarcity. If you fancy a print you know the drill, DM for info!

Meteora
The magical landscape of Meteora and it’s precipitously perched monasteries is one of the most spectacular sights of the Greek mainland. Inscribed on the Unesco World Heritage list, the cluster of Eastern Orthodox monasteries is second only in importance to those of Mount Athos. DM me for info if you’d like a limited edition print.

Jurassic Coast
The Smuggler’s Inn at Osmington Mills, Dorset on what should be a busy summer holiday season evening. Anchored indefinitely offshore are three of five (the other two are just out of frame) massive cruise ships sans passengers which are currently using the sheltered waters of Weymouth Bay as a free parking lot.
