It's been the longest stretch since the beginning of my photographic endeavours that I've posted here, which isn't to say I've been weaned from photography; far from it. But geopoltical macrocosm's and personal events have shifted priorities and circumstances to an obscene degree leaving enthusiasm towards anything, particularly editing through images, at low ebb.
Of course there have been political fluctuations both here and across the pond that have become so distressing that I can no longer bring myself to open a newspaper. But also, on a more personal level, I have had to contend with personal loss in the form of Dan and Georgia, two friends who passed away last October. And also my mother, who suddenly passed last month and is something no amount of going straight back to work to occupy myself is allowing me to ignore/accept/comprehend as yet.
However, I have taken some comfort in the outpouring of support from friends, who have come out in force and some which I haven't seen in 6+ years. And also I've been going back through images from the past 8-9 months and editing them down to an acceptable few. The images in these three concurrent posts are, firstly, from 2017 onwards, the post below that is picking up where I left off in Summer 2016.
