Walking into the buildings at RAF Bicester in 2013 is like entering a time capsule back to the second world war. RAF Bicester was part of Bomber Command in WW2 being used mainly for training. The RAF left in 1976 and most of the buildings have been left untouched since. The site is of architectural and historical importance being the most complete and untouched example of such a collection of buildings most having being built in the 1920′s. The site contains a number of listed buildings and scheduled monuments.
What I found fascinating about the site as a photographic subject is that the decay and abandonment have added new layers of meaning to the utilitarian buildings so the impression today is an intriguing mix of the evocative and the impenetrable.
In May 2013 the site was sold to Bicester Heritage who kindly gave me permission to photograph the site before they start renovation. My particular thanks to Daniel Geoghegan and Charles Morgan.

How to photograph something as iconic yet cliched as the Pyramids? My response was to choose monochrome, use square format and abstract the geometry as much as possible, cropping tight with a telephoto lens to emphasise the scale and texture of the monument.

These photographs document a trekking and 4×4 journey through the Western Desert of Egypt. Starting at Bahariya Oasis we travelled through the Sahara Suda (Black Desert) and Sahara Beida (White Desert) ending up near Farafra. As a compliment to these images I produced a second, more abstract series of photographs entitled “Sahara Sands” from the same trip.
The journey was undertaken with desert explorer Sam McConnell who runs highly recommended adventure travel expeditions to the region in collaboration with Abou Anis of Sub Sinai, off-road driver Khaled, and the bedouin of Bahariya Oasis

I have always loved the desert. One sits down on a desert sand dune, sees nothing, hears nothing. Yet through the silence something throbs, and gleams…
