Colour Photography

Nowadays colour work comprises perhaps 25% of my work and it has never been more than 50%. I've always been more attracted to black and white. But I'm not (yet) an absolutist; sometimes the colours are much to intense to ignore, or they add a subtle dimension to the image that might be diminished by black and white. Hopefully this sample of images wisely reflects that approach.
