The Royal Parks Foundation Drinking Fountain commission was won by Moxon Architects in 2010, a sculptural and elegant structure that is also highly functional. The refined, flared shape of the body of the design is evocative of natural forms, and appropriate to its siting. The movement of water from its supply to draining away is carefully considered, as is the construction of the work, which consists of a minimum number of parts that can be efficiently joined to one another.

Some shots from a day trip to Dungeness, Kent. I used the Cambo Wide 580, with Schneider 58mm Super-Angulon f5.6 XL, Ilford FP4 Plus – the last time I ever paid someone else to do my BW processing, I now have a dip-n-dunk system up and running, consisting of several HP combi-plan tanks.

Dungeness is a fascinating place, photographed half to death. It seemed almost impossible to avoid cliches. I looked for minimal compositions with some of Stephen Shore’s images also in mind.

It was a scorching out, completely cloudless day, emphasizing the barrenness of the landscape.

When I go back I think I will photograph only the power station… although I am not sure I could base a series here as much as I like it – too much baggage.

The last shot is of the sound mirrors at Denge – a structure used in an early form of acoustics-based radar.
