Thanks for your appreciative remarks. I concur conclusively with your observations regarding the current state of play with what we get lumbered with as the 'built environment'.
My pursuit in my personal recreational photography has always been fairly grounded in the 19th Century mixed with a healthy nod towards Walker Evans, the Bechers and the New Topographics. Hugely, trawling through the archives in the present predicament it is most apparent just how much this relentless B&W 'seeing' was an antidote to the colour work I was doing at the time shooting the McMansions of the Windsor Road corridor, cinema and shopping complexes, and the pre-Olympic building burst.
Most of all, like for most of us, it's great fun feeding a life-long addiction to pointing shiny lensws at things while looking at road-side upside down television under a black cloth.
"Photography was not a bastard left by science on the doorstep of art, but a legitimate child of the Western pictorial tradition." —Robert Galassi
