BLURRED LANDSCAPE IMAGES - INSPIRED BY DAVID BURDENY

BLURRED LANDSCAPE IMAGES - INSPIRED BY DAVID BURDENY

Years ago, before I was even seriously interested photography, I came across David Burdeny's Drift series of images and they really caught my imagination.  Back then I didn't even realise they were photographs, I wasn't sure what they were to be honest, I just loved the simplicity and colour.  There was a clarity and minimalism about them that really appealed to me.

I came across them again years later when I was learning more and more about photography and was fascinated by long exposures of water, another of David Burdeny's specialities.  This time I looked at them with a photographers eye and realised that they were blurred images, and an attempt to capture the essence of a the landscape in as minimal way as possible...just the colour and light with the removal of form.
