My favourite ‘Desert Island’ photographer

Darren Almond (British, b 1971) – is an artist with a very diverse practice including film and sculpture as well as photography.  His best known works are described as highly evocative meditations on time and duration.  I am particularly drawn to his long exposure images of landscapes lit by a full moon, especially those of water.  This is partly because I’m a ‘night person’ myself, but also these image seem to combine the best of colour landscape photography with craft, beautiful light, abstract qualities, mystery, hints of folktale…  Stranded on a desert island with one of these, I think I would find aesthetic pleasure and storytelling possibilities to last a long time ….
