Photography

 

Jane took up photography with encouragement from her father at home in the Peak District. Before going to architecture school she had a year out and lived in Athens, Rome and Paris. Images from her travels provided the foundation of her architectural photography portfolio. The blue Mediterranean skies and buildings from every age of European culture were new subjects.

At university she found that her interest in the camera and light on film, became a skill with a practical application on site. As a young architect photography was essential and from her design projects the opportunity to capture finished schemes and enjoy the contemporary urban landscape expanded.Her love of the wild moors and colours of home were also important to her art palette as she continued to draw from life.

As a lighting designer and photographer a new challenge was to capture lit effects in buildings. Her projects involve natural light and electric lighting. Visiting Cornwall to paint, Porthmeor Beach St Ives became a place to watch the sun set. Jane also fell in love with the Barbara Hepworth garden and the holes and shadows of the sculptures Bowness, Hepworth Estate. Shadows and transparency are the preoccupations of her work.
