“John has concentrated on architectural images for much of the past decade, travelling in mainland Europe, the Middle East and the UK. In his talk John describes his approach to revealing new insights in buildings from unusual perspectives and the value of looking up. Most of his work is monochrome, but he uses colour when its intrinsic to the story. He’ll describe the equipment he uses, some of the logistic issues in planning such work and show some of his recent project work. “Judging of Mardi Gras outing images
