I first visited Dunraven Bay in 2007 to work on some author portraits for a friend but I have been back there regularly ever since. It has everything a beach should have, including ice-creams, coffee and parking, and a southern sun. This image divides into three parts, of land, sea and sky, while the lower thirds both divide in two. The wet and the dry pebbles create a pleasing little geometry.
My past work in sculpture no doubt prompted me to notice the surfer standing alone in the water like an Antony Gormley figure of steel. He caught my eye just as I was taking a shot towards the rocks, and in my haste I forgot to turn the film holder. The serendipity of a double exposure is a wonderful thing in hindsight.
