Artist's description:

"In this lonely Welsh valley nestles a large but often calm lake. Reeds puncture the glassy smooth surface and there is silence, apart from the occasional bleating of Welsh mountain sheep, or the call of a Raven over the hillsides. This woman was so bird-like in stature, so graceful and so slim, that she reminded me of the Heron which often frequents this place. She delicately pointed each foot into the lake so as not to overly disturb its surface and even the act of doing this mimicked the beautiful creature. She turned to face the light, her front feeling the gentle warmth of the afternoon sun, as the cold water clasped her legs, and she stood motionless, embracing the sensations as I shot a few frames of this human wader."

"Landscape Figures" explores the relationship between organic human figures and a notional 'wild landscape'.

For Glyn the landscape has always been more important than photography itself but for over three years now he has spent much of his time on a project exploring fragility of the human form in wild landscape, but also the sensuous relationship of the human to that environment.

“Although the nude is vital to the project and integral within the images, the images are not just ‘nudes’ – they are landscapes and stories. In a way they are just simple, beautiful, dreamlike visual questions”.
