A lovely part of any new landscape project can involve walking or cycling around taking photographs and sketching. As part of the ongoing Lay of the Land project I have been looking at the landscape around Folkington (as did the brilliant Eric Ravilious). I always find taking black and white photographs helpful as it helps define the drama.

Black and white photography was always considered the signifier for 'art' photography until the 70s and 80s when colour became part of a new, postmodern way of thinking about how the world and the objects in it are valued.

In the art school we consider black and white photography as a way of engaging with and reading tonal range, space, form and composition in a way that now in itself, due to the ubiquity of colour photography, feels like working against the grain.
