“Over the last 20 years, I have become more and more intrigued as to what takes place in my mind prior to the decision to make the photograph. It is a complex and very energetic process made up of evaluating, interpreting, analyzing and ultimately decision making. Through my photography, I have felt privileged and humbled to have experienced so much richness and diversity across the globe. A photograph has no human voice nor music to support it. It just is. At its best, I feel that a still image of the landscape can contain a sense of purity that settles my mind and offers me the opportunity to reflect and wonder at our world” Charlie Waite
The photographs included in ‘Behind the Photograph’ are a collection of images taken by Waite from across the globe. Waite’s work conveys a sense of spirituality and calm, ever more poignant in our fast-paced and ever-changing world. His ability to stop the viewer and present an opportunity for reflection and peace, however temporary, is second to none.
Waite’s everlasting legacy to landscape photography is evident in ‘Behind the Photograph’.
