Image of the day - John Whitfield (Renée Pfister Consultancy)

John Whitfield is a successful commercial photographer. Recently he's been pursuing personal projects. His latest project "Beached" was born from his fascination with the Thames estuary.

"I would explore the creeks and saltflats looking for likely landscapes to photograph. Occasionally I would  stumble across an abandoned ship's hull,stripped of its planking with only its ribs remaining. I had found my subject. They epitomized the wild, otherworldliness that attracted me to these areas. Object, sky and land became one and I began to search them out. "

John Whitfield will be exhibiting his 'Beached' photographs  at the Palace Art and Craft Fair 16-20th May with Renée Pfister Consultancy
