I’m still not sure I’ll ever fully understand the Japanese term wabi-sabi I would like to think what I photograph fits in with this aesthetic. I am interested in forms in nature mainly and things with an odd sense of place outside of the ordinary.
To talk a little about gear I use primarily a Hasselblad 500C/M, Leica M2 and Sony A7. Some of these images were shot on a Canon 5D and 135mm f2 L which I sorely miss. I shoot Ilford Delta 100 & 400 and Kodak Portra.
I admire the work of photographers Rinko Kawauchi, Ragnar Axelsson, Michael Kenna, Syoin Kajii, Takashi Amano, Stephen Shore, and Joel Meyerowitz.
Thanks for reading and looking, Neil.
