Light by Night Photography
The New World
Lighting the Bandstand
I set out originally to introduce the night sky to a new audience. Being an astronomer since I was a school boy has enabled me to explain to others the connection we have with the stars. My aim is to capture images which enable the viewer to experience this bond between human and sky.
The Stars and our connection to them. Every atom in our bodies were created within the heart of a star.
My photographs have an almost painted quality. This due to me actually painting with light using my torch during the exposure. I have my images printed onto cotton which gives the subject greater depth and allows colour to be expressed n a more natural way.
