Why this blog?

Reading Gerry Badger’s essays in the collection The Pleasure of Good Photographs has been a real pleasure. Discussing some of the essays online in a forum organised by Flak Photo Books and Tom Griggs of http://www.fototazo.com has been a stimulating but also sometimes a frustrating experience. Facebook is simply not suited to discussion. And it makes any kind of authorship very difficult.

So I have started this blog. It may not last very long. But I do want to explore the notion of “the quiet photograph” — in words and images, through practice and through contemplation.

This is a personal exploration. A kind of stock-taking.
