This website illustrates the imaginative and creative photography of John
Brooks. This high quality Fine Art Photographic work specialises in both
abstract and semi-abstract landscape and urban images. His relationship with
his environment and the emotional response that this creates are what the
images are about.
The images are not
just about capturing the dramatic but are also about the common place, the
familiar and easily overlooked. These may take on an unexpected beauty when
isolated and abstracted from their usual context.
His preferred camera and film format is 6cm x 6cm square using a Rollieflex
camera or 6cm x 4.5cm with his Bronica, together with two 5" x 4"
plate cameras. Since the advent of digital photography he also uses a digital
camera using the superb quality and definition afforded by the Leica lens.
The subject matter is extracted from East and West Coast Canada, United States
of America, United Kingdom, North Africa, Azerbaijan, India, Cuba, Poland,
Belarus, Russia, Sri Lanka, Mongolia and China.
