Born in Whales and trained as an historian, Geoffrey James has been making photographs since the early Seventies. For close to forty years now, armed with his cameras, James has surveyed a wide array of parks, gardens and natural sanctuaries. From the refined classical French and Italian gardens to Olmsted’s great landscape arrangements, from the desolate sites of open mines to the corrugated wall on the Mexican American border, he has amorously observed the landscape and its respiration through his lens. His innumerable solitary wanderings have given an imposing number of photographs which, through the years, have formed prodigious chronicle.
