Geoff works in 4×5, 5×7 and 8×10 sheet film

Colour is a pleasure to the eye – black and white speaks to the soul.

Geoff is drawn to the basic elemental nature of black and white photography, exploring the landscape and nature, finding metaphors of the human spirit, weathered by, yet enduring, the seasons of life.

As a master black and white printer he presents the viewer with a different way of seeing. Viewing his subject matter in terms of line and form, mass and texture, light and shade, without the diversion of colour. The darker nuances of black and white are symbolic of the unconscious, resonating with the shadows of the human psyche.

Geoff still captivated by these symbols, this exhibition presents an invitation to look beyond that which is immediate – that which is seen at first glance – to that which is beyond the image.
