About my photographs

Behind the Hayward Gallery, London, 2008

The photographs displayed here are a tiny sample from my collection of images amassed over some fifty-plus years. Hopefully they convey something of the areas that interest me in photography. This collection is added to from time to time as new work is produced.

The complete set from this book may be found elsewhere on this site, together with images from his few other published sources.

Edwin Smith Revisited

Powerscourt photographed by Edwin Smith in 1965

In 1965, whilst photographing in Ireland for the book of the same name published in 1966, Edwin Smith visited the formal gardens at Powerscourt in County Wicklow.

One of the photographs he took there has always held a certain fascination for me and a trip to Ireland gave me the opportunity to visit the gardens and see this impressive place myself. Armed with a copy of this published version of his image on my iPad as a guide, I set out to try and photograph the view as it is today.
