Musing: Photography Auction

‘Stillness and Occurence’

Image 6

I just bought this print by David Williams at the Falmouth Photography Print Auction.  I love it.  This is the first time I have ever bid for anything in an auction.  This is also the first time I have purchased a work of art.    Auction adrenalin is amazing.

This image is from a series of large scale seascapes that were made over a five year period between 1995 and 2000.  They were taken from the beach at Portobello, Edinburgh.

“Mobilising an essentially redemptive aesthetic, Williams creates a mesmeric space fostering a capacity for contemplation on the part of the viewer.”
