Hello. I’m David Baker. In November 2005 I started milouvision.
Since 2005 I have been the recipient of various photographic awards including Outdoor Photographer of the Year 2012.
For four years my Common Ground photographic project examined the Common and the old cemetery to artistically interpret a landscape that has been shaped by human activity through management of this shared space. Common Ground had an Arts Council funded exhibition in the Southampton City Art Gallery from 2 December 2017 to 7 April 2018.
The Ridge Trees project concentrates on a specific area of the New Forest, Hampshire governed by two triangles. The first of these relates to three geographical points of the Forest roughly covering Puckpits, Vinney Ridge and Markway and all photographs have been made within this boundary. The second is concerned with light and time with the three points being mist, in autumn/winter and at the cusp of dawn.
We are frequently drawn to the flow of the sea and the ever changing landscape of shore, sea and sky. Coastal landscapes may often offer a simple geography of a beach, the sea and a cloudscape and as such there is a challenge to construct new and inventive photographic interpretations. Sea Fever is my interpretation of those seascapes and of the close affinity between sea and sky.
I have had three books published each dealing with a project:
‘Sea Fever’ by Triplekite
‘Ridge Trees’ by Kozu Books
‘Common Ground’ by Kozu Books
I have exhibited over 20 times in a sole and collaborative capacity principally showing project work.
