Tsk, so derivative. I spend fifteen years trudging myself around the Russian speaking world making a career out of it and some photos, and then decide to make a long-term project of UK landscape/geography, and what happens but this guy turns up to follow me around ?!

I even know that thermal his paragliders are going up in. I used to fly out of the Southdown Gliding Club site....

But seriously, looks like I'd better pay some more attention to this guy !

Strong contender for the Christmas gift...

Lovely photos and interview. Very inspiring. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for this Mike, a refreshing change from the usual TOP fare - a great example of the kind of photography that makes so much more sense when it's been explained in a straightforward, unpretentous way.
Nice to know that Ailsa is still involved, such a pity she left the magazine which has now drifted way too far from what it once was.

Cheers, Robin

As always a fine write up by Ailsa highlighting someone we should all pay attention to.

I looked at his snaps on his website and I have decided to emigrate.......

To England!

Ailsa good to see you on TOP, I loved B&W mag when you were the editor. Hope you contribute here more often.

Hi Mike

Nice to see that Ailsa is still alive and well and still doing phogographic editorials. I really enjoyed her magazine so nice to see her here as well.

Good stuff. I saw several of the prints at the NY Photo Festival (or whatever it's called), and they are, as Roberts said, "unashamedly beautiful." Another book for the wish list . . .

Good idea. Luckily, I don't have to. I'm already here.

On a friend's advice, I bought "Rodina" and enjoyed it immensely, so I can't express how happy I am to read an interview of the man behind the work - thanks muchly for that, Mike.
