I had a walk round Doncaster Market on Sunday, in the grey damp, because I wanted to get the project started. Two pictures resulted. This was a surprise as it was very quiet and almost deserted, lacking its usual energy and noise. I felt a great inertia and almost gave in and left the camera in its bag. I think I'll make my next trip on a market day!
All a bit of a shock this AA2A web site, contract, fellow artists and great support from Doncaster College. Not sure I want to write a blog but I seem to have started.
I bought a book on Edward Weston's work yesterday. As he always does he upsets my view of photography. I was all set to get the Nikon's out and start work on the project and then you look at the content and quality of his images and you have to stop to have a think and recover. I was in the middle of this process when I discovered that I can write a blog and now I've got the book out again!
Book is: 'Edward Weston The form of the nude' by Amy Conger and available from Galloway and Porters in Cambridge for £19.95 or, I hope, any good library
