"In these environmentally uncertain times, something else intervenes when we look at Waite's work, something wholly unintended which would have been unnoticed in earlier times. We view photographs, no matter how reliable or in whatever style or context, as reports from the 'real' world and Waite's beguiling images appear to show our planetary home as unspoiled and profoundly beautiful. In so doing they provide us the reassurance that sometimes it is. This is therapy indeed. Nevertheless, the very perfection of Waite’s vision leaves a slight aftertaste of unease since we are reminded of what we might lose" Royal West of England Academy
