'Black Square'


Images of water carry within them so many rich symbolic associations.  Materially, it is an essential element of our human existence, as  critically  necessary to us as the air we breathe.  Geographically, it’s often a boundary, a liminal space that separates large and small land masses, continent from continent, country from country.  It’s  used as a weapon of war, as a natural defense and as a means of escape. Psychologically, water can be regarded as a symbol of transition from one state of mind or being to another and it has been used in art and literature to denote a passage from a material space to a dematerialized space.


My photographs seek to fuse material and psychological associations with water into a single image or a series of images.   During the Great War,  the English Channel was both a great physical divide between soldiers and their loved ones but was also a means of transporting letters to and from the Front to home. The light playing on the water is seen to represent a positive focus on the messages of hope and love and real human bravery conveyed across the channel during the Great War.
