At the end of last year, one of my goals was to be less erratic and casual with the things I chose to photograph, to avoid flitting from one subject to another with no real consistency. I think, to a point, that I managed it – quality over quantity.
The career highlights of 2018 were my white squatter camp project, ‘Plakkerskamp’, and a two-week autumn trip out into the North Atlantic on a fishing trawler – both projects took me way out of my comfort zone, physically and emotionally.
For 2019, I’ll be aiming for more of the same, I have another couple of North Atlantic trips planned, and sometime in late spring, I’ll be heading up to Spitzbergen to document the work of a Norwegian whaling vessel, which has already stirred-up an inordinate amount of controversy. 2019 will also, hopefully, see some of my fishing boat images published in the form or a book or Zine (this depends on interest and funding…)
All the images here are my particular favourites, for no particular reason. Thank you, everyone, for stopping by over the last year to share in my visual and literal meanderings.
