The new look Broadland Gallery is currently under construction. Keep checking up on us as the site develops

So you may wonder why the Broadland Gallery doesn’t have any pictures of boats, wind pumps, rustling reeds, slow moving rivers and broad lakes and that’s because that’s where I live rather than the subject matter. And likewise you may ask why do I have two such seemingly incompatible subjects as travel and the female figure for my photography?

The answer goes back to my childhood when I first took an interest in pictorial things. Firstly I can still recall a pocket magazine laying around the house called Lilliput. It was full of general interest articles but in the middle of each edition  was a selection of  arty photographs depicting far away places along with some stylish “figure studies” of tastefully posed nudes. The second recollection was of my mum taking me to a photography exhibition and I can still recall to this day  wonderful monochrome images of a park bench in snow and a rim lit nude.

That did it, along with a camera for my eleventh birthday I was hooked. Travel photography came first and later I ventured out into portraiture and finally found my way to nudes.

So, I have always enjoyed my photography and I hope you will enjoy some for the pictures I’ve taken and included here in my Broadland Gallery.
