SERIOUS ARTY BIT:
The waters edge is where two worlds collide, things from one world look fascinating and odd in the other, death befalls the trespasser who outstays their welcome. Fascinating things can be found, some terrifying some sublime, but its always interesting taking a look in the neighbours garden.
DOWN TO EARTH BIT:
I like water but cameras don't, well ones I can afford don't anyway, so I often combine two of my favourite things, exploring outside with my wife and kids & taking photos of interesting things.
Rich McCoy was born in 1973 in Banbury, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom and soon after becoming aware of his surroundings he relocated to South Africa, then to Botswana. Not long after hitting double figures he moved back to the UK again, where he received a good education in Fine Art from the University of Gloucestershire and collected many old cameras. He married his teenage sweetheart (Louise) has 3 children (Lori, Charlotte & Hunter) and they currently live together on Waiheke Island in New Zealand's fine waters. Rich currently works as a freelance designer of interfaces but has started creating books like this and other more illustrative ones. He hopes to exhibit his paintings and photographs of which the proceeds of this and other books will contribute. Rich is also a dyslexic vegetarian which sometimes leads to confusion in restaurants, but none of that is relevant to this book I just felt like saying it.
