Back when Derek Jarman created his cottage garden at his elegant fishing hut I experienced Dungeness in Kent for the first time. It was a field trip in January and we had horizontal snow - blizzard like conditions. The photographs I took there informed my project which was based on the films of Andrei Tarkovsky. I used my greatly loved Olympus OM-1N and processed all the film and print myself… I must find these!

When I returned last year with my family and dog we enjoyed together the vast sky and gravelly headland. Not a lot had changed. The remnants of fishing boats and the tracks taking them to the water are feast for the photographer with colour and texture constantly shifting with the light.
