Ystalyfera Canal Walk………

When I am teaching my photography students I always encourage them to connect to the landscape, look beyond the expectation of creating picture perfect postcard photographs because there is always enough of them to go around.

These photographs were taken along a canal where I live in the Welsh Valley of Wales. My family and I love to stand next to the river and through various shape and sized stones into the river (the Simplest pleasures of life).

I have digitally manipulated each photograph not to make the idealistic image but to unveil the lines, layers invisible to the naked eye. I feel like I’m uncovering the soul, history, whats been before of the land.
