Lindis Pass is a barren mountain pass in the South Island New Zealand. In summer it has yellow low tussock grass and in winter it is usually covered in snow. I have always found it very difficult to photograph this place and I decided that I wanted to capture the spirit of the place as I imagine it in my memory
Clicking the shutter in the first stage in a process of producing a print like this. The image will be worked on in post production to bring out the emotion in the photograph. I try and create a mood which is communicated with the viewer.
For those interested in the technical issues, I print all images myself on to mold made paper from Hannemeulhe. The company was founded in 1584 in Germany so they know a thing or two about paper!
I use Epson Ultrachrome inks which are archival quality. Expected life before any fading is 100 years under UV glass
