About Linda Bembridge
Thank you for taking the time to look at the Greetings Cards on my website. Hopefully you will see that I am passionate about photographing the landscape in all its forms. I constantly strive to capture the emotion of the wide vistas whilst at the same time discovering and exploring the beauty in the detail of the world around us, the ‘intimate landscape’. One day I might achieve that goal.
I am lucky enough to be able to balance a fulfilling career encompassing creativity in words and numbers with a passion focusing on the artistic and abstract. My photography provides the counterweight in my life and, without it, everything would be less colourful as a result.
There are many excellent photographers who are able to portray a scene in its literal form. This is not something I strive to do. I am much more interested in portraying an interpretation leaving plenty of room for the imagination. In pursuit of this, many of my images, particularly more recent images are blurred. I subscribe to the view of Henri Cartier-Bresson that “Sharpness is a bourgeois concept”.
I made the decision to print many of my images as Greetings Cards as I think it’s a great way to share images that appeal to us individually. I know we live in the technological age where the internet and email prevail but I still find great pleasure in taking the time to think about, write and send a card rather than an email. I also love to receive a card and still have most of the cards I have been sent over the years. I can’t say the same about emails!
I do also sell my images as limited edition prints in a variety of sizes and formats. Please contact me directly if you would like more information.
Thank you again for taking time to visit my website and please take the time to let me know what you think.
