When you take to bits what you normally take for granted, you often realise that there are many many ways of looking at something rather than the one you’re used to. A moment’s reflection confirms that how we – the individual doing the looking – are feeling, where we’re looking from, what memories we are mixing with what we see and so on will also affect the way we see things. Crossing the river from the city of Liverpool, one sees it afresh. Sometimes a little distance makes clearer as in woods and trees. Terry’s wide angled shot includes both sides of the river, and softens the city so that its huge cathedral seems to be a part of a natural landscape. Gareth’s deliberate blurring and out-of-focus shots show the importance of the individual viewer. In all of the pictures, because perhaps there are not many clues to time, there is a feel of a certain timelessness.
