I find travel photography difficult to get my head round. Is it personal? Is it for an audience, then if so, who is that audience?

People travel for so many different reasons, its hard to take a photograph that creates an image that is appealing to as many people as possible - or interesting.

After all, there's normally a postcard already in print for every shot you take.

Perhaps travel photography is about making people jealous - to show off your wealth, success, luck, and happiness.

At least that seems to be what proliferates in instagram.

Visiting a place as a tourist for two weeks will never give you the depth of understanding of someone who visits for 3 weeks, a month or longer.

Without that understanding, a tourist will only be lucky in finding something truly interesting to photograph.

So maybe that's why most travel photography is so plain, repetitive and uninteresting. There's no real exploration - its just about meeting expectations, personal expectations.

Suffice it to say, Menorca is a uniquely wonderful place, with more mystery than a tourist could ever hope of even beginning to uncover.

And I hope that's what my travel photographs say!

Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, Choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players, and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol and dental insurance. Choose fixed-interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisure wear and matching luggage. Choose a three piece suite on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked-up brats you have spawned to replace yourselves. Choose your future. Choose life . . . But why would I want to do a thing like that?

The more I visit denmark, the more it grows on me. It's a quiet place and its style is subtle, but give the country time, and listen closely to what people have to say, and you'll understand what I mean.

These photos are a series that I featured on instagram.

#Snowday in London. We didn't get much, but it was a good little trip into a world where Covid seemed far away.
