“You know what, Saul Leiter said it all – ‘I don’t have a philosophy, I have a camera’. I am not (usually) trying to portray anything deep in my photographs; I do it because I love it. Sometimes I can produce something that could be considered art. Sometimes I have enough similar good images to call them a project, and a number of them become my portfolio. I strive to improve and to produce images that are interesting and somewhat different to the norm. For me, the beauty is in the image itself; Even when I am producing a series of photographs to relay a (subtle) message, for me the images also need to be strong enough to stand alone.
I really hope you enjoy looking at my photographs. If you see something deep in them, it is of course intentional…..” – Mark Heathcote
