• Wasi Sabi

    Someone once said my work was wasi sabi. At the time I didn't know what that meant but being intrigued I found out. It is a mainly unwritten Japanese concept. In summary it is about the beauty of the ordinary, the beauty of impermanence and imperfection. Many of the images I take on my Ebony are format camera seem to fit this description - pictures of sheds, walls and structures affected by the elements. Once they may have been shiny new but the patina of age and weathering has left it's mark. Their history is there in all their scratches and scrapes and bumps.
