Technique and vision are inseparably linked.

Any decision which one makes at any point in the process can significantly alter its expressive qualities, its meaning.

Older summer morning shot from Higger Tor in Peak District.

I have been quite lucky with the light.

The golden light lit up the rock and mist gave the picture multidimensional feel… I’m quite pleased with this one.

David Bailey

It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the ordinary.

 David Bailey – In “Face,” (London), Dec 1984.
