John Wimberley

Carran Church 1986
The photographer John Wimberley makes fabulous black and white pictures of nature, landscapes and figurative photos.

John Wimberley’s photographs are populated by an abundance of pictorial elements: clouds, rocks, ravens, stones, mists, trees, grains of sand, feet; and it’s extraordinary how he repeatedly gets these elements to work in his photographs. Sand grains line up perfectly to mirror ripples of light in the clouds above. A cloud in one corner of a photograph echoes the form of a tree branch in the corner opposite. Clouds in another photograph compliantly rise from the rooftop vent of a shepherd’s wagon. And, where it would be rare for a raven to be seen sitting on a rock, there are two ravens in that photograph.

    Just after you posted this – I showed John’s work to the “other half” (a graphic designer)and my eldest (who’s doing photography in college). There’s now an argument going on as to whether the pics are photophoped..
    I know they aren’t and so does eldest, but other half thinks they could be.
    But she knows nothing about “traditional” photography!!

    Thanks for the comments. AnD cobra, the “new” guys, and girls, doesn’t know the traditional photography, exposition and other great stuff you can do without a computer. Well, some know. 😉
