The lone figure in a landscape is a recurring motif in my work. I have spent time wondering what, if any, theme I could find in my photographs. I rarely set out thinking ‘I must photograph lone figures in landscapes’. It is less conscious than that. Rather I find that over time and many, many photographs, messages do begin to emerge; I have to think them through afterwards and not before. And there is probably some truth that your images – perhaps the ones that you are most satisfied with – reflect how you see things in the world, there being a bit of me on the page too.
