The landscape of Dartmoor is instantly recognisable and yet so varied.
As a photographer, I started to photograph the Moor in 2014. I became captivated by the nuances and characters of the different tors and soon found myself determined to photograph them all, as well as the incredible wealth of archeological wonders, mining heritage and history that surrounds them. This culminated in my book, the Dartmoor Tors Compendium, which details 154 tors on Dartmoor.
The photographs in this exhibition are taken from the Dartmoor Tors Compendium.
In terms of photography, my natural inclination is to monochrome photography. Dartmoor can be hard, rocky, moody and dangerous: its texture, contrast and rugged beauty is best captured in black and white I feel. My colour images are deliberate: when colour gives meaning. You’ll rarely see me waiting for the sunset to make photographs; I love Dartmoor all day.
