It is advice that I’ve used in my photography. Sometimes we just need to stop, be quiet and take in the moment around us. This I can sometimes achieve especially when I’m out in nature or the landscape but struggle to do so every other day.
So, for the past seven years, for a period of four to six weeks during each winter I’ve travelled alone with my camera, along the roads and pathways of Te Wai Pounamu, NZ’s South Island. I’ve considered it a kind of retreat. It allows me to chase the weather, it takes me to places where I can be slow… to sit on rocks….. to feel and be still. The black and white images I make are of stillness.
They are my moments of calm I can take home.
