I’ve been photographing a particular view – the view out my kitchen window – for 18 months now. I started in mid October 2016, at the height of Autumn and initially chose 40 images taking me up to October 2017. The one year project was featured in the December 2017 issue of the newspaper Kentishtowner. I decided to continue with the project and have now added more photographs to the gallery bringing the Changing Views project up to date. Beyond using the same camera and lens has been no rule or methodology. The inspiration was often sparked by a particular light, atmosphere, cloud formation; my intent was to capture a particular fleeting and transient moment. Increasingly these transient moments have involved a chance spotting of men and machinery on the the train tracks whilst electrification work takes place on the Gospel Oak to Barking Line. The images below have been taken at dawn, dusk, midday, in rain, snow, dazzling sunlight and fog. For me it has also been interesting to witness the effects of time. I love seeing the processes of change unfold, and the interplay of nature, construction and urban development in this specific cityscape.
