At a time when a photograph can be taken, uploaded and viewed across the world almost instantly, Bob is rediscovering a love for film for his project work. He enjoys the fact that it takes time. He uses this time to get to know an area he has chosen to work in; considering the natural light, colours, shapes, textures and motion that are particular to the place. It is through this process of quiet exploration that he identifies his subject matter, evolving his connections to and understandings of place.
Bob's work is a journey through photographic processes. Having been fascinated by this, Bob has experimented with film and print, making his own connections and meanings along the way. This has led to an exploration and interpretation of the layers of the landscape, including time as another dimension.

Why Baby Sea Giraffes?
While on the north Norfolk Coast looking out to sea my daughter remarked that the wind turbines looked like Sea Giraffes. A few days later we were driving through France and someone asked her what the wind turbines on land would be called. Quick as a flash she replied they were baby Sea Giraffes; they were not mature enough to leave the land to join the adult Sea Giraffes out at sea. When I was looking for a name for this site the conversations came back to me.
