About the Book
This is my third book of images of Switzerland - the first was “Panorama Switzerland” and the second “Impressions of Switzerland”.
For this book, I have returned to presenting more photo-realistic images but I have experimented with some duotone - in some cases introducing areas of original colour back into the picture. Traditionally, the look of a duotone is favoured over plain black and white photography because the duotone has a more saturated, compelling appearance. Duotones often seem more textured to the eye, and they also capture more photographic detail.
I spent many years working in reinsurance with a major Lloyd's underwriting group, mainly writing computer systems. More recently, have spent the last eight years working in Cape Town's prisons as a Christian missionary. In that time, the mission has grown to a small team and we also have a farm project now to help ex-prisoners who are serious in changing their lives. I now split my time between working with a church in the east end of London and continuing with prison ministry in both London & Cape Town.
