For the last thirty years John has been captivated by the ever varying light and mood of Ireland's Atlantic coastline. Exploring this region has offered him an insight into the way our landscape has transformed and evolved over centuries. The fragmented Irish Atlantic coast from its mountains to the sea is a wealth of natural beauty. It is in this space that he finds solitude. From the subtle colours of early morning light, the Irish landscape compels him to capture it. Ireland's notorious changeable weather provides a challenge, there is a depth, and emotion, which each ray of light imparts on this demanding landscape. John’s images reflect the changing light, and his use of a wide-angle lens lends to it a better sense of place and location. The strong use of foreground intensifies the image, while the infinite expanse of ocean reminds us of the vastness of our world. It is here, in Ireland, with its wind and rain, sunshine and cloud, that he finds inspiration for his work.
