North Northwest by Julian Calverley
A collection of personal landscapes made in the North Northwest of Scotland. An ongoing personal project started in 2005. Julian’s fascination and connection with the landscape, British locations in particular, dates back to when he was a young boy, with numerous family trips spent wild camping in and around the Scottish Highlands and Western Isles. These everlasting memories help to provide a deep affinity with the wild, grand open spaces of the British Isles. Preferring the qualities of autumn and winter light, Julian often works before dawn and after dusk. In all weathers, he captures the atmosphere of the scenes before him, often returning to the same remote locations time and time again. Landscapes can look so different, almost unrecognisable, from one moment to the next that Julian considers it vital to experience them in their varying weather conditions and sea states.
