LAND: Throughout the 1980s specific areas of land within a small radius of where I lived in Kent, were to be sites that became the locus for a ‘retreat’, or places to be quiet in. My concerns were not landscape pictures in the traditional sense of that term, nor were they photographic documents of the place but would function as photographic ‘equivalents’. The concept of photographic equivalency has a long history, a process whereby the activity and the photograph made as a result, act as a metaphor and mirror the ‘self’. On occasions I would photograph further from home, but the sense of wanting quiet remained uppermost.
