About Gillian James:
59 year old photographer from Burton Joyce, Nottingham, England with a passion for gardening and gardens.
I adore flowers, insects, trees and the hedgerow and in photographing these subjects I try to convey the vitality, rhythm and beauty of what I see through the lens. I also enjoy the magic of photographing flowers, I have grown, in a studio setting.
I find the countryside endlessly inspiring, almost painfully so if I do not respond regularly by photographing it. I love the land and the sea trying to convey their energy and shape in my work.
As a contrast I was first drawn to the urban and abstract and find photographing these subjects wonderfully challenging and intriguing .
