Taken from Hope's Nose, near Torquay harbour, UK. I used my Zeiss 1930's folding camera with 120 film to capture this long exposure. There's something about small islands, sea stacks and geological coastal features that fascinates me. They seem so represent something timeless and ethereal, but I'm not sure of the exact words to describe this feeling - photography, however, has the ability to convey it.

b. 1994, Joel Biddle is a photographic artist working in London. A recent photography graduate of the Arts University of Bournemouth, Joel works with minimalism in his photography, searching for order and structure, sometimes only found by his own intervention and study, often focusing on the interaction between bodies of water and objects. The tranquillity found with large bodies of water, a substantial reason that a sea view is so desirable and buildings are built to face the sea despite the corrosive sea wind that those buildings will be exposed to, is reflected in the core of his work.
