Valda Bailey FRPS

Valda Bailey is a freelance photographer living in Sussex. Her approach to photography is informed by her background in painting and her influences come as much from artists as photographers. She is drawn towards imaginative abstraction and the challenges that present themselves when moving beyond the act of solely replicating what is in front of the lens.

"The photographer, Robert Adams wrote 'For photographers, the ideal book of photographs would contain just pictures – no text at all'. A worthy sentiment indeed - I feel sure that the metaphors in this image are too obvious to need explaining. Unsurprisingly, it was the admirable tenacity of the lone tree that took my eye and how this contrasted so strongly with its fragile vulnerability."

Look closely in the bottom half of the sky, just right of centre and the International Space Station is visible as the straight line amongst the curve of the star trails. Appropriate colours for the Ukraine appeal made this an obvious choice of image." It was photographed from the island of Guernsey.

Jem Southam was born in Bristol. He is one of the UK's leading photographers, renowned for his series of colour landscape photographs.

It is part of a larger series called 'a bend in the river', which now consists of seven separate Winter studies, all made on a bend in the River Exe.
