Well, Happy New Year.

Already, we are safely on ‘the other side’ as work continues on Dan Holdsworth’s edition for his exhibition, Blackout, currently showing at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art.

I have also been working with Colin Barker once again on further orders from his incredibly successful 2010 show, Part of the Pack, as well as with Mary Ann Rogers, scanning in preparation for her forthcoming editions of 2011.

Lately, I have had reason to leaf through my own photographic archive and I was pleased to stumble across my last works to date.

Made on 5×4″ colour negative film at Bolam Lake in Northumberland, all the way back in 2004 , I called them ‘Tree Spaces’.

Shot on a cold February morning, they seem highly appropriate to the current climate, so I thought you might like to share in them too.

Having already been providing digital services for a number of years by this stage, it was at this time that I realised I could no longer give my own photography the time and devotion I felt it needed. One day, maybe—another lifetime perhaps…

  1. Lovely work Jack, Personally I always really struggle photographing trees, Its always so hard to get the perspective right and sucking all that subtle detail into the camera.

    Tree space 2 would be my favourite, I really like the fallen tree and the chaotic feel it has with the branches going in all directions.

    I am looking forward to the day you produce more work, Hopefully in this lifetime.

  2. Hi Reed, Thank you for the kind words… JL
