About the Photographer
Brian Rowlands took up Photography as a teenager, learning to print his own black-and-white photographs - which involved a pitch-dark room, smelly chemicals and peeling skin!
He finally made the move to digital printing some years after completing a B.A. in Fine Art at Newcastle Polytechnic. In spite of the proliferation of on-line digital images, He was keener than ever to make prints from his photographs.
An artistic response to colour has been made fast and easy by digital cameras. He is often astonished by the omnipresence of colour in the modern material environment. Harbours and ships offer one particularly good hunting ground for colour and for striking shapes.
Blessed with a warm summer night and sporting a new digital camera, I spent a July evening photographing on the decks of the ferry to Zeebrugge. I was unprepared for the simple, stunning colours, created by a vivid sunset and glaring cabin lights. Most of all, I was thrilled to find that the vividness of colour increased, if anything, as it got darker!
