Stuart Hutchinson returns to Colonnade House with his latest photographic works.
Water is an integral part of our landscape. I wanted to understand water, what it is, how it shapes our world and what impact we as a civilisation have on it.
Photographing water is always challenging, it is rarely still and you can photograph the same stretch of water every day for a month and not capture the same image twice. Yet photographing water in the landscape is also calming. The motion, the sound, the smell has a profound impact on the senses.
From the tranquil stillness of dawn over Ullswater Lake to the turbulent pounding our coastline takes during the aftermath of a passing storm I have tried to capture all facets of this powerful element as it shapes the world around us.
Taken over a 6 month period these images depict water in the landscape across the UK.
Stuart Hutchinson has always had an interest in photography. Born in London, he moved to Sussex a decade ago and now resides in Worthing with his wife, Karen, and stepdaughter Annie.
