The Field

The Field - April

The Field is a photographic study of a single field over a period of two years. The field in question is not particularly exceptional. It lies on a slight undulating hill. It is bordered by a railway line. Many of the images recorded on the field could be from many other fields. I first passed the field on my bike. Attracted by the curves of the barley whose heads were too heavy for their stalks I returned with my camera. I then continued to visit the field drawn by the contrast between its apparent static appearance and the changes it underwent while I was absent. Sometimes when I visit, it can be quite hard to create a compelling image and other times I looked at neighbouring fields and wonder should I have chosen them as they were much better looking at that point in time but I have been loyal and stuck with my original field.
