Picture of Fragile (Special Edition)

75 available with signed printed A3 print of cover image.

Publisher's Description

‘The work in this book is an attempt to reconcile some of the conflicting aspects that are of interest to me in the landscape. The images here are an investigation into how the most fragile elements seem to have their very existence challenged and their vulnerability magnified when set against the strength and solidity of their surroundings’.

Valda Bailey is a freelance photographer living in Sussex who first became passionate about photography when she was 14. Her approach to photography is greatly informed by her background in painting and her influences come as much from artists as photographers. She is largely motivated by colour and form and the tension and dynamism that these components can bring to an image.

Her objectives are to portray an interpretation of a scene rather than a literal representation. She makes her images using camera movement and multiple exposures – two techniques which help to create abstract shapes and blur extraneous detail.

She has spent time in New York under the expert tutelage of noted street photographer, Jay Maisel and has been greatly influenced by his teaching about light, colour and gesture.

Her work has been featured in broadsheet newspapers, national and international publications and she has recently been invited to teach for Light & Land Photographic Workshops run by Charlie Waite. She has exhibited most recently in London and last summer was the first woman to be invited to join six other photographers to exhibit at the biennial Masters of Vision in Southwell.

She has images in private collections worldwide and her work has been purchased by notable members of the art and photographic community.
