My own personal interest in sailing has allowed me to develop a portfolio of sailing images, in particular relating to traditional sailing craft such as the Thames barge.
Living in Faversham sparked an interest in sailing – Peter still has a small sailing boat – and a love of Thames sailing barges. ‘They were the juggernauts of their day,’ says Peter, until roads became the means of transport rather than the sea. Restored Thames barges with their magnificent red sails can still be seen in the Swale Estuary and compete in annual sailing matches. Peter also photographs landscapes and Kent’s atmospheric and exhilarating coast and marshes.
